Manchester's Hilton Deansgate, venue for the 2011
BHA Conference
This year, the British Humanist Association's annual conference takes place at the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester, running from Friday 17 June until Sunday 19 June. Under the suitably ambitious heading "The Meaning of Life", the BHA have put together a fantastic line-up, with the possible highlight being a rare opportunity to see novelist Philip Pullman, who will receive a special award for services to humanism. Other contributors include Peter Atkins, Julian Baggini, Chris French, A C Grayling, Natalie Haynes, Stephen Law, Richard Norman, Mark Vernon and BHA President Polly Toynbee.

Tickets for the conference, which also includes entertainment on the Friday night from comedian Robin Ince and “Egghead” C J De Mooi, and a gala dinner on the Saturday evening, cost £156 and are available via the BHA website. To help spread the cost, the BHA are offering a pay-by-instalments option over three months – you'll need to sign up for that this week (before the end of April) though, so bear that in mind. See the site for more details.
