What we do at the Debating Society!

The society provides an outlet for those passionate about current affairs, social justice, innovation, technology and current affairs. We hold training every Thursday from 5pm where we discuss ideas, debate a variety of topics and socialise.

For those interested in pursuing debating competitively, we compete across the UK and Europe and hold competitions throughout the year. We also work with schools, to provide opportunities from a young age. The Debates Society is an excellent way to learn or further your public speaking, persuasion and advocacy skills in a relaxed environment. Even if you are not interested in taking debating too seriously, the society is still a great way to make friends with like minded people! Numerous members have attested to improvements to their confidence as a result of taking part. And because there is no membership fee, there is no commitment: if you try it and it isn’t for you, no worries.  

Feel free to come along on Thursdays! All are welcome! For more information either email us at or message our facebook page. Feel free to add any of our committee members on facebook, who would be more than willing to answer any questions you have! To be added to the group chat to recieve the link to zoom meetings, message our facebook page.
