Workshops run every Monday at 7pm in Theatre 1, Appleton Tower, will be coordinated by Sara Brdnik, and are designed for all members irrespective of debating experience. 


We begin with a presentation of a topic, then split up to debate the motion of the week, with 5 minute speeches following British Parliamentary (BP) Debating guidelines. This is a great way to learn more about debating - whether you want to get involved with competitive debating or judging, or simply want to come along for fun. Each debate will be chaired by an experienced judge who can provide additional personal feedback. All abilities are welcome.

Find the powerpoints from the workshops here: 2018/19 and 2019/20.

All our workshops are followed by a social at 32B with free snacks and discounted drinks!
