Many people come along initially as guests, and we welcome all who are interested in debating provided you are aged 18 or above. We meet monthly on alternate Wednesdays or Thursdays at 6.45 for 7.15pm, at Edgbaston Golf Club. The evening commences with a meal and debating begins about 8.30 – 8.45. We aim to conclude by 10.00 – 10.30.
Come along and see what we’re about, and if you’re interested in joining us after a few guest visits, then our only criterion is that you have a love of, and a willingness to participate in, the debating process. Our ‘season’ starts in September and ends in April or May, depending on the calendar.
We are also active in debating with other groups, such as the University of Birmingham Debating Society each year (where a lively debate with able and enthusiastic students is always guaranteed) and we have regularly debated with the local Rotary Club too.
Contact us by providing some details along with your email address, and a member of our committee will be in touch as soon as possible to provide you with a little more info, and agree a date for you to join us.
