In a rapidly changing world, debating ideas matters more than ever. The Battle of Ideas 2018 festival, at The Barbican in London on 13 & 14 October, was a huge success and provided a unique forum to discuss the big issues of our time. The debate continues with our UK & Europe satellite programme and you can also buy tickets for next year’s festival on 2 & 3 November 2019.

Those who enjoy the comfort of conventional wisdom will find the Battle of Ideas a very unsafe space.
