Dragon Hall Debates at The Forum

Who's afraid of populism?

Millennium Library, The Forum, Norwich

The election of Donald Trump, the threat of populists in France and the Netherlands – not to mention in Poland, Hungary and Turkey – has caused some to fear for the health of liberal democracy itself. Why are so many disengaged from or dismayed by their legislators and governments? Is populism a challenge or an opportunity?

Speakers to be confirmed.

These free events, held in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, are open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is needed. The speakers will talk briefly and then the audience are invited to ask questions and offer opinions as the discussion opens up.

This year's series will be relocating temporarily to the Millennium Library at The Forum, while Dragon Hall undergoes renovation to open as the National Centre for Writing in summer 2018.

All events start at 7.30pm and should last until 9.30pm, or when the energy dries up!

Free, booking essential. To book your place, visit the Eventbrite booking page.
