Brighton Lit and Phil
Literature and Philosophy for the Sociable

Lit and Phil is a tradition going back a long way:

Manchester....."for lively minds around Manchester", since 1781 (predating the founding of Manchester University)
Newcastle-upon-Tyne     founded 1793, "it gathers strength as it goes"
Leicester      founded 1835, "the subjects introduced should be of intellectual interest"

These groups interest themselves in many subjects (including science)
In Lewes there was the Headstrong society (inspired by Tom Paine).
