spiked is thrilled to be returning to this year’s Battle of Ideas, Britain’s premier ideas festival. If you’ve never been to the Battle of Ideas before, you’re in for a treat. This is the festival where free speech reigns, as hundreds of great speakers grapple with the key debates and controversies of our time. Plus, audience participation is very much encouraged.

This year’s festival will take place at Church House in Westminster on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October. On the Saturday, we’re holding an extra special live edition of the spiked podcast. The great Andrew Doyle, Paul Embery and Inaya Folarin Iman will also be joining us as guests.

Plus, your favourite spiked writers will be speaking throughout the weekend. Don’t miss Tom Slater on populism, Simon Evans on civil liberties, Joanna Williams on free speech, Frank Furedi on Ukraine, and much more.

You can get your tickets to the Battle of Ideas here. And if you’re a spiked supporter, you can get up to 25 per cent off your tickets. Just go to the spiked supporters hub to grab your promo code.

See you there!
