Who are we?

The Brighton & Hove Debating Society has been active in the area for over 50 years, promoting all forms of debate and discussion through our regular monthly debate and other special events. We are a diverse group with members of all ages, backgrounds, interests, careers, political and religious beliefs. Our membership truly reflects the cosmopolitan mix of the Brighton and Hove area and as Debators we strongly believe everyone has the right to air their views as long as they in turn listen to and respect the views of others who may disagree with them.

Our main speakers are drawn from our membership and from time to time we are joined by external speakers who are specialists in their areas. We have recently heard motions proposed by members of the academic community, local church leaders, representatives of various charities and other lobby groups.
