Secular Hall, Leicester
The building of the hall was proposed in 1872 after George Holyoake, who coined the word "secularism", was refused the use of a public room for a lecture. George Bernard Shaw and William Morris are among the many radical thinkers who have spoken there.
The building is under the protection of the government, as it is an important historical landmark.
