*CANCELLED* Pub Social

Harrison’s Bar 1854 Bar & Function Suite, 15 Regent Terrace, Sheffield S3 7QA
Tues 14th April, Harrison’s 1854

We think it is really important for humanists in Sheffield and the surrounding area to have a chance to just have a chat with fellow humanists. For those who’ve been before, you’ll notice that we’re trying a new venue just off West St.

We’ll be discussing all things humanist or otherwise and it’s a great chance to meet people in a more informal setting.

*CANCELLED* Talk Yourself Better: Ariane Sherine

Wed 25th March 2020, 7:30pm, Showroom 5, Showroom Cinema

Assisted Dying: What Would You Do?
An ethical discussion group

Wed 12th February 2020, 7:30pm, Harrisons 1854

15 Regent Terrace
Sheffield
S3 7QA
Off West St, between Jimmy’s Kitchen and So Famous! (formerly Sinclair’s)

Humanists UK form part of the Assisted Dying Coalition who campaign for the legalisation of assisted dying in the UK in the context of terminal illness. Currently, assisted dying is criminal act and neither relatives nor medical professional are allowed to aid their patients in death. However, the withdrawal of life-supporting treatment and palliation are both legal, where patient comfort is prioritised over and above the prolonging of life.

This discussion will be aimed at lay attendees with no prior knowledge and will be chaired by Rajin Chowdhury, Chair of Sheffield Humanists and a former President of Sheffield University Debating Society. You will have an opportunity to either express your opinion or simply listen to others. Both soft and alcoholic drinks are available and the venue is disability accessible.

We hope to see you there for what will be a fascinating discussion!

Can humanists celebrate Christmas?

One of the great myths surrounding humanists and the holiday season is that humanists cannot celebrate Christmas. Teddy Prout from Humanists UK will be here to talk about and take questions on why he thinks this myth persists and how to get into the secular holiday spirit!
