the Brighton Salon

Working together with the BoI, we have tried to recreate a similar atmosphere of free and open discussion in the discussions we hold in Brighton.  The Battle of Ideas has been key to creating an enthusiastic and dynamic audience within our Salon.  In particular, it is the participation of Brighton Salon members at the festival as both audience and speakers, that makes the Salon more than willing to promote this unique event.

"Only the Battle of Ideas could provide the platform for a discussion about a GCSE Science exam where the atmosphere was so electric. It felt like a battle for the soul of British education."
