  • This Friday…

    Friday 28 November – Fracking in the UK: the tidal wave of extreme energy threatening the British Isles

    The UK is currently threatened by three areas of unconventional oil and gas development: shale gas/oil, coal bed methane (CBM) and underground coal gasification (UCG). This short talk, film, Q & A and discussion will offer a broad description of all three technologies, a summary of their impacts and explore how communities in other parts of the world are successfully defending themselves against this threat. Presented by Frack Off.

  • Philosophy Forum

    Our friendly philosophy discussion group takes place on Sundays from 4.00pm to 6.15pm in Archway N19. Sessions are led by experienced philosophers, with plenty of opportunity for discussion. No previous study of philosophy is required.
