The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Founded in 2015, Festival of Debate is an annual series of panel discussions, debates, Q&As, artistic responses and other public events in Sheffield, exploring politics, economics and society. It’s coordinated in collaboration with partners across the city, from grassroots campaign groups to community groups to cultural institutions.

For 2024, the programme will focus on exploring radical reform and building new systems and new ways of being.

Come back soon for details of Festival of Debate 2024.
