Early warning: the return of Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

We're delighted to announce that this December will see the return of Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, our rational Christmas celebration hosted by Robin Ince. This year the shows are taking place over 5 nights from 15-19 December at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London (and a night at the Hammersmith Apollo TBC).

We're just finalising the acts with Robin, so I can't give you names, but take it from us that it'll be a fantastic show, with a line-up to rival last year's, which included Richard Dawkins, Ricky Gervais, Dara O'Briain and Jarvis Cocker.

Tickets for the Bloomsbury shows are already on sale, so book now to ensure you don't miss out.

Proceeds from the shows will go to the Rationalist Association.

Aw, are these bloody humanists too scared to leave London Town? We want an opportunity to be godless too!

Will the same people appear each night or will there be different appearances on each evening?

I agree, Anonymous. Us scots are just as bad as those London-based heathens. Justice for non-Londoners!!

I've booked my tickets for the Saturday, so will have to make the long trip east to London, should be worth it though!

Thanks for the questions. On the bill issue the plan is to have about 6 performers who do every night- TBC- and then different people on rotation. We will be announcing the full line-up shortly (a week or so I hope). On the issue of going on the road- we are London based and a small charity, but we do plan to try and take a version of this on the road in 2010.

best wishes

It would be nice to see some of this outside of london, a little further north; hey even Edinburgh would be closer than London, Birmingham's quite central as well. Whose daft idea was it to stick the capital in a far off corner of the country ... Come on somebody, own up, who was it?!

Any chance it will be filmed for a DVD this time?
I don't believe in London.
