Professor Richard Dawkins and Professor (and new Humanists UK President) Alice Roberts will be among the audience as we play our part in the annual Humanists UK Darwin Day lecture on 12th February.

Professor Roberts is taking over as chair of the event from Professor Dawkins, who has chaired the lecture since 2003.

2019's lecture will be the first time Professor Dawkins is put in the hot seat himself, discussing his life in science, Darwin’s legacy, and the place of humanism in the world today. Professor Dawkins will also be presented with the inaugural Humanists UK Darwin Day Medal.

The choir will be on hand to do a short set as part of the lecture.

You can find more information about the event on the Humanists UK website.
