News & Upcoming Events

Weekly Club Nights 🧠🗣

Our Weekly Club Nights are every Thursday at 6pm!

If you’ve never debated before, or want a recap as to what it’s all about, there'll be another ‘How to Debate’ seminar which will build on the things discussed at the first club night and will include watching a show debate. If you're keen to develop your skills as a judge you'll be able to trainee, and if you’re keen to get debating, you’ll be able to put your name down and we will sort you into a team (or you and your friends can enter as a team).

Opening Night Party

The party doesn't end when O'Week does.
