Festival of Debate

Festival of Debate aims to kindle conversations that might help to shift some clouds from around big issues, and clear paths towards answers to questions that can sometimes seem too big to ask.

Now in its sixth year, Festival of Debate 2021 is taking place entirely online. Running from 4th May to 6th June, it features live-streaming talks and panel discussions, opening up discussion on key social, political, environmental and economic issues of the day. It'll explore local priorities here in Sheffield as well as concerns on a national and international scale.
