On the 19 July the wonderfully talented students from The King Edward VI Debate Society are hosting a quiz night starting at 7pm in order to fund participation in future events.
In particular the Debate Society recently entered a team of eight students into the regional round of the European Youth Parliament. Given the high standard of the other debaters we were honoured to be chosen as the winners. As a result the team have qualified to proceed to the National Session of the European Youth Parliament in Liverpool this September. This is a four-day event that will bring together 150 participants from across the UK and Europe to engage with the theme:
‘Overcoming the Challenges of Political and Economic Globalization’.
The Debate Society are naturally extremely excited about this, though the costs to attend, as well as accommodation and travel, are prohibitive. Fortunately this gives them an excuse to run fun events such as quiz nights, raffles and bag packs, things which will all also help in furthering our team work along the way!
Tickets for the quiz night (and refreshments) are £5 per person (with free entry for children aged 12 and under). Tickets will be available on the door. There is a maximum limit of six people per team but it’s not a necessity to have organised a team before the event – all are welcome!
