Battle of Ideas — 22 & 23 October 2016

Presented byIn association with

This year's festival was a huge success, with hundreds of speakers challenged by thousands of attendees. And there's still more to come with our remaining Battle of Ideas Europe and UK satellite events.

Tickets for Battle of Ideas 2017 are now on sale at Early Bird prices.

The Battle of Ideas takes place over just one weekend, but the debates you hear, and the arguments you have, last for months afterwards. Nowhere else have I ever been so uncomfortable, so challenged and so engaged. From bolshy youngsters to well-trained academics, everyone is welcome to have their say - the outcome is truly electric.
