National Secular Society – Bradlaugh Lecture – Manchester, 9th September

The National Secular Society (NSS) will be holding their inaugural Bradlaugh Lecture at the Manchester Art Gallery on Saturday 9 September, to mark the end of their 150th anniversary celebrations. Bryan Niblet, who published a biography on Bradlaugh, the founding president of the NSS, will deliver a talk entitled ‘Dare To Stand Alone’. NSS historian Bob Forder will also deliver a talk and there will be a drinks reception. The event will run from 2pm to 4pm and will coincide with the re-hanging of Walter Sickert’s portrait of Bradlaugh, which attendees will be able to view for the first time in decades. It is free to NSS members and is £5 for non-members. Spaces are limited and bookings can be made via the website.
