Spiked

spiked is dedicated to encouraging free and open (and even loud and rowdy) debate about the big issues of our time. So we’re delighted to sponsor the Battle of Ideas - an annual festival that is dedicated to the very same, and which brings together a most impressive collection of thinkers, writers, activists and members of the public each year. Let Battle commence.

"The Battle of Ideas is a unique opportunity to learn from vigorous exchanges among some of the world's best-informed and most provocative people."
