We are a friendly local group promoting all forms of debate and discussion. Our programme covers a wide range of topics from politics through philosophy, morality and fun! We welcome members and visitors whatever their views, backgrounds or age: as Debators we believe everyone is entitled to have their say.

Our regular debates are held on the third Tuesday of every month at St John’s Day Centre, Palmeira Square, Hove. See the Contacts page for a map and other details. In addition we hold a number of social events and frequent smaller discussion evenings in members' homes.

This site will tell you about us, explain debating and lists our current programme. There are even some helpful notes about preparing and delivering a speech. Come along to our next meeting or contact us to learn more.
