Festival of Debate announces 2018 programme

Sheffield’s annual Festival of Debate has just released details of its biggest programme yet. From Ed Miliband to Ruby Tandoh, the festival will feature a host of big names in venues across the city from 18th April until 29th June.

Celebrating its fourth year, the festival has a programme chock-full of panel discussions, debates, Q&As, artistic responses and keynote speeches, featuring a range of topics and speakers. There are over 75 events this year, covering everything from the NHS to the rise of robots and even a run of Trump – The Musical!

Other highlights include appearances from bestselling author and journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge, comedian Francesca Martinez and former Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis. With over 10,000 tickets available for events across Sheffield, there are plenty of opportunities to be a part of the discussion.

Festival founder James Lock said: “Our chance for a better world comes from facing issues head on, learning new points of view, making the effort to listen and being empathetic with one another. We believe this is everyone’s responsibility and hope that this year’s Festival programme goes some way to furthering that ideal.”
