This year, Festival of Debate also joined Citizen Network's growing network of citizen festivals: CitizenFest.
Dr Simon Duffy, Director of the Centre for Welfare Reform said:
"The Centre is so proud to be based in Sheffield, home of the amazing Festival of Debate. We are excited to be working even more closely with our friends at Opus Independents, who have created the festival. Increasingly we are seeing how local change can ignite global change, when we work in a spirit of equal citizenship and mutual respect."
