Think for yourself, Act for everyone

Lancashire Humanists provide a forum for people of Lancashire to meet and discuss social, political, religious, philosophical, scientific and artistic issues. Current monthly meetings are held in Preston and we aim to be active across the county – from Blackpool to Burnley and Chorley to Lancaster.
Lancashire Humanists are a partner group of the Humanists UK, which represents the interests of ethically-concerned but non-religious people; and the National Secular Society, which challenges religious privilege and promotes separation of church and state.

Lancashire Humanists can help put you in touch with accredited Humanist celebrants and also Humanist School Speakers. We can also provide a speaker for other interest groups who wish to know more about Humanism.

We meet once a month, usually on the 3rd Wednesday evening. From September 2021 we will be moving to our new location in the Oasis Multi-Faith Centre at UCLan.  The building is located at Kirkham Street, Preston PR1 2XQ, but the entrance and car park are located behind the building that you can see on Kirkham Street when you turn right into Bhailok St.

The entrance to the building is marked on the map above and a sign will be put up with Lancashire Humanists on it in the entrance area.  The room is upstairs and we will be waiting to direct people to the right place.

We also promote our events on this website, via our Facebook page and by direct email to our standing mailing list. If you want to be added to the mailing list and join our future events then please send an email to
