Discover the exciting world of philosophy over a cake and a coffee, or a light meal and a glass of wine, with author and former philosophy lecturer, Alan Murray. The sessions will take place every other Friday between 2pm and 4pm starting on Friday February 9th, and each begins with a short talk by Alan on some of the key ideas in philosophy, followed by a lively and fun group discussion on how these ideas relate to contemporary issues. No preparation is required and you don’t need to have studied philosophy. All you need is an openness to new ideas and a readiness to have your mind blown.

It can now boast a philosophy café – a space for people to explore new ways of thinking about themselves and the world around them. With its comfortable coffee lounge, wine bar, ice-cream parlour, museum and local history library, the Dugdale Centre provides the kind of vibrant and culturally rich environment in which intellectual and artistic creativity can thrive.
