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.

From betting to minimum pricing: saving the poor from themselves?

"Although 'battle' suggests destruction, these were some of the most constructive debates I've taken part in. This was civilised conflict in the best sense of both words."
Julian Baggini, author, Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind, and The Ego Trick
