Sunday Assembly Brighton


Sunday 9th October 11.00 – 12.15 pm

Middle Street School, 37 Middle St, Brighton BN1 1AL

You are invited to join us at 11am on Sunday 9th October for our monthly celebration of life. Or are you?
This month we’ll be exploring the theme of identity from some curious angles.

Our guest speaker is (hopefully) the real Steve Bustin: public speaking coach, professional compere, author and former BBC journalist and PR man. As he examines our October theme, Steve will be asking… Do we actually own our identity? Or is it up for grabs in our over-sharing world? Do we always know who we’re talking to? And who are we anyway?

To illustrate the myriad challenges around this fascinating area, he’ll be sharing a funny and slightly disturbing story of how he became the face of an online international dating scam, how he went public in order to stop it happening to other people and what he’s learned from the experience about the nature of identity.

Elsewhere in the assembly, you can also sing along to our monthly selection of awesome pop songs and enjoy several bonus speakers and personal reflections, followed by free tea & cake immediately afterwards (in your own keep-cup ideally)!

Entry is completely FREE although we do have an optional collection to cover our costs and make a donation to our monthly charity.

See you on the 9th… or at least someone that looks like you!

1. Even though COVID restrictions are no longer in place, you are still welcome to wear a face mask, keep your distance from others or do whatever makes you feel comfortable at the venue. However, we would respectfully request that you do not attend if you have any COVID symptoms or have tested positive for the virus less than two weeks prior to the event.

2. We are still not running the Young Assembly or Foodbank features yet. Still sorry!
