Festival strand
Hot Off the Press

On each day of the festival there will be a number of informal ‘pop-up’ conversations between Battle of Ideas speakers on topics ‘in the news’ or book launches on contemporary themes. These will be programmed in the days leading up to the festival to ensure they are as topical as possible. Details of issues and speakers will be published online the week before the Battle of Ideas and look out for details over the weekend.

All Hot Off the Press sessions are free and open to non-ticket holders.

Business bashing: should corporates 'care'?

"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
