Famous Connections

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries Conway Hall Ethical Society was connected to both the great and the good of the age. Many came to address the Society at their Sunday and mid week lectures including Bertrand Russell, William Morris, Sidney Webb and the suffragettes Marion Phillips and Marion Holmes.

In these letters from the Society’s archive William Morris confirms that he will give a talk on ‘the hopes of civilisation’ and George Bernard Shaw agrees to have his name added to the list of subscribers.
