“Unholier Than Thou!” Speaker: Kevin Precious (Stand up Comedian)

      Kevin Precious is a former RE teacher turned stand up comedian and promoter. Besides having played

      many of the top clubs in the land, he also promotes shows in arts centres and theatres under the

      Barnstormers Comedy banner. He has previously toured the country with a stand up show entitled 'Not

      Appropriate', dedicated to the business of teaching.

      In between the various comedic activites, he attends his local humanist group - he's an agnostic, folks -

      where he loves a good old debate about the big questions in life. Expect jokes and stories then, about his

      time as an RE teacher, being a humanist, the God-Shaped Hole, and the philosophy of religion... and you

      can ask him a few questions of your own afterwards, if you wish.

National Secular Society - Newsline

Archive of News Articles

Campaigning locally for a Secular Britain.

Who we are and what we believe:

We are a group of people based in and around the Nottingham area who support the idea of a secular society, in which people of all religions, and none, should be treated equally.

We support the Charter of the National Secular Society and meet regularly to discuss secular issues; listen to guest speakers; organise campaigns, have debates and the occasional social evening.

Secularism Protects:

We are not anti-religion. We oppose discrimination against religions and discrimination by religions equally but we believe that religion is a private matter for individuals and that the privileged position of religious organisations and the self-interest of religious leaders is one that should be challenged.
