The Tetley Year 10 & 11 Schools Debating Competition 2017

Monday 23 January, 4pm to 8pm 
The Tetley, Hunslet Road, Leeds

The Leeds Salon is again partnering with The Tetley to host the second year 10 & 11 (ages 14 to 16 years) school debating competition for central and south Leeds schools. The competition is a one-off event involving three/four schools, using the format and topic guides of the Institute of Ideas sixth-form Debating Matters competition.

As well as being crowned The Tetley champions, the winners will also go into the final of the Headingley Festival of Ideas Years 10 & 11 Competition to compete against the three north Leeds qualifying round winners, to be held at the HEART Centre in Headingley on 22 March 2017.

We are also very please to announce that this year's competition is sponsored by one of Yorkshire's leading law firms, LCF Law.
