“…talks of the highest possible quality over the widest possible range of topics, delivered by speakers of the highest possible calibre often at the very top of their professions!”

Dhun Daji - Member since 2018

“As well as the programme of activities, it is the people of course, who make a difference. I could not have hoped to meet a more friendly, warm and interesting group of people.”

Cigdem Balim - Member since 2021

“By going to the Lit and Phil events, I am exposed to a series of lectures on subjects that I would otherwise not discover… I find out all sorts of new things I wouldn’t otherwise choose to know about. It’s my mind broadening guilty pleasure!”

Nancy Jaeger - Member since 2018

“I became a member because I wanted to hear authoritative voices in the fields of study which interested me…The Lit and Phil’s calm and considered approach to understanding our world has now become even more important in a ‘post-truth’ age of misinformation and the often incoherent cacophony of social media.”

Christopher Burke - Member since 2009
