Where?

9 - 13 George Street
Oxford
OX1 2AU

We use the upstairs function room.

To find it, go up the spiral staircase - then look for the door immediately opposite you. Go through, up another flight of stairs and you will find us. There is a bar up here and it will be open, so no need to spill your pint on the spiral stairs. If you want to eat in the function room then you have to order your food downstairs and then carry it up yourself.

Step-free access is available.

What's the talk about?

Paula Kirby is a former Christian, writer, consultant, and project manager, specializing in freethinking and secular organizations. She has undertaken projects for Richard Dawkins, and is a regular blogger on the Washington Post’s “On Faith” feature, where she has gained a reputation for her strong views, insightful analysis and forthright style.

February 2011 will mark the second annual Think Week - a week of high profile free public events, running from the 21st to the 27th February. Think Week is organised jointly by local student and town societies. We are also grateful to our Sponsors for 2011: the British Humanist Association, the Richard Dawkins Foundation, and the Friends of Think Week.

Think Week exists to show a wider audience the kind of discussion and debate that these societies offer. We are proud to welcome Oxford residents, Oxford University and Oxford Brookes students to our events. We welcome different points of view and entirely avoid base questions like 'does God exist'.

Our speakers include prominent scientists, writers and politicians, and we have events on themes form poetry to Sharia law. For the second year running, the week will feature a public performance by the BHA choir.
