The aim of the Battle of Ideas festival is to provide an opportunity to debate the big issues of our times in a full and frank manner, bringing together a wide variety of voices and, most importantly, creating a space for everyone to have their say.
The Battle of Ideas festival is an intellectual journey, with many different routes to take through it. With scores of debates and hundreds of speakers, there will be much to enjoy for everyone on an enormous range of issues.
The Battle of Ideas festival is serious, fun, inspiring and much more. But don’t take it from us – what makes it unique is that it is not simply about listening to academics and commentators telling you what they think. For us, the audience IS the festival, and we actively encourage you to have your say, to challenge other people’s ideas and be challenged yourself.
