December 2022 marks the twentieth anniversary of Debating Matters. Since our inception, we’ve hosted sixth-form debating competitions across the UK, in Europe and beyond! We’ve worked in a range of different settings, including Debating Matters Beyond Bars in prisons. Our acclaimed Topic Guides continue to be widely used as a teaching resource around the world.
We’d like you to come and celebrate our twentieth anniversary on Monday 12 December at St George’s German Lutheran Church in Aldgate, London from 7pm.
We are delighted that Ali Miraj, founder of the Contrarian Prize, will be giving a lecture titled, ‘Against Conformity: Why Debating Matters’, which will be followed by audience questions and comments.
Join us for some big ideas and Christmas cheer from 7pm. And, if you want to keep the party – and the conversation – going, join us afterwards in the pub!
Date: Monday 12 December
St George’s German Lutheran Church, 55 Alie St, London E1 8EB
Public transport: nearest Tube stations are Aldgate East (two minutes’ walk) and Aldgate (six minutes’ walk)
Tickets are £8 / £5 (concessions) and you can buy them here.
