The Festival of Debate is made up of a series of panel discussions, debates, Q&As, artistic responses, keynote speeches and other public events in Sheffield (UK), aiming to create a meaningful dialogue around key social, political and economic issues.

It’s hosted by not-for-profit social enterprise Opus Independents, in collaboration with a wide range of partners across Sheffield.

Festival of Debate will return in 2018.
