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.

Drugs and bionics: enhancing sport?

"There's a real sense of intellectual delight that so much can be discussed in just sixty minutes - and so thoughtfully - both by the speakers and especially by the audience. A rich feast of ideas."
Christopher Kelly, reader in Ancient History and Fellow and Director of Studies in Classics at Corpus Christi College
