‘No Prayer Breakfast’ a secular success at Conference!

September 24th, 2014 | Posted by Editor in Events | News | Uncategorized

We were delighted to hold another successful ‘No Prayer Breakfast’ fringe meeting at Labour Party Annual Conference on 23 September 2014. The event was described by Kelvin Hopkins MP as being his conference highlight when we hold them, and the atmosphere was certainly very positive, especially for 8am!

We worked closely with the British Humanist Association (BHA), to which we are affiliated, to put together the biggest panel of prominent speakers we’ve had so far. Chaired by Naomi Phillips, we heard from:

  • Angela Eagle MP, Chair of the Labour Party and Labour Humanists’ Patron
  • Andrew Copson, BHA Chief Executive
  • Owen Jones, author, commentator and Chavs author
  • Polly Toynbee, author and journalist
  • Kelvin Hopkins MP, Vice Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Humanist Group
  • Sunny Hundal, journalist and blogger
  • Tom Copley, Member of the London Assembly

Read what happened on our Storify of the event. You can also read the BHA’s report of their activities at all the Party conferences.
