Debating Union

The University of Nottingham Students’ Union Debating Society are hosting the John Smith Memorial Mace, which is the English Universities national championship for debating.

This event is being run in conjunction with the English-Speaking Union, a speech and debate charity with a long history. They need volunteers to judge debates, assist debate chairs, deliver debate results, show debaters and judges where to go, and to help with setting up, and tidying away at the end of the events.

This is a great opportunity to view the organisation that has to go into a large event, to meet interesting people from all round the country and to get a taste of what debating has to offer!

When? Saturday 25th February, 9am – 8:30pm

Where? Portland and Trent Building, University Park Campus

Anything else? 3 meals will be provided for volunteers!

Please let us know which day you would like to volunteer on when you sign up – you can do just one, or both Saturday and Sunday – it’s completely up to you :)
