Battle of Ideas Festival – Shaping the Future Through Public Debate.

October 15, 2022 at 9:30 am - October 16, 2022 at 6:30 pm UTC+0

We are delighted to be partnering for the second year running with the Battle of Ideas Festival, taking place in Westminster, London on 15th and 16th October.

We’ll be there all weekend with our stall and will be co-hosting two sessions, one with Toby Young debating the Online Safety Bill and the other with Free Speech Champions discussing how students can be persuaded to support academic freedom and freedom of speech on campus.

Across the rest of the two-day festival, speakers include Andrew Doyle, Helen Joyce, Matt Ridley, Maya Forstater, Winston Marshall, Rosie Kay, Inaya Folarin Iman, Allison Pearson, Frank Furedi, Laura Dodsworth, William Clouston, Sunetra Gupta and many, many more.

We hope to see you there! One-day or weekend tickets can be purchased via this link. FSU members should check their inbox for emails from FSU Events, containing a special discount code.
