Debating has been at the heart of Trinity College for 250 years, ever since the foundation of the College Historical Society (the Hist) in the spring of 1770. To commemorate this grand tradition, the Hist are hosting the Inaugural Edmund Burke International Debating Competition!

Teams from North America, Europe, the UK and Ireland, will compete over two days, debating topics from "This House Believes That Universities Are Failing Society" to "This House Believes That The Democratic Experiment has Failed", before the best of the best progress to the Grand Final.

Come to hear the world's most skilled student orators tackle the big questions of our time with wit, verve, and rhetoric.

All welcome. Dress Code: Smart. Doors Open: 17.30.
