FESTIVAL OF DEBATE will return in April, May and June 2018 to venues across Sheffield. Stay tuned for programme announcements in the coming weeks... 

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.

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
