Conway HallConway Hall is a landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life. Completed in 1929 at a cost of about £45,000, the name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway, anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine. The London home of the Ethical Society, the building now hosts a wide variety of lectures, meetings, classes, live music and community events.
