The South Place Chapel and Institute Soiree

The South Place Chapel and Institute Soiree Committee produced some wonderfully playful programmes for their events.

This one from 1879 includes hearts, shoes, flowers, a crescent moon, stars, children in a basket and, of course, a cherub!

The Conway Hall Ethical Society archive includes minutes of the Soiree Committee from 1879 to 1905 as well as this and other delightful programmes. The archive can be accessed at Conway Hall Ethical Society Humanist Library and Archives.
