The Debate

Hosted by The Alfred Fagon Series
Sold out

Join us for The Debate, a lively forum to discuss topical issues in the performing arts.

The performing arts have been under pressure for a number of years will the next five see the sector wither and die under the Tories? How will small theatre companies survive? And who cares if the arts are not diverse enough?

Our panel of arts practitioners will debate these and other topical issues in the performing arts. Martin Edwards (chair) playwright, actor and former BBC journalist is joined by Mojisola Adebayo actor, playwright, director, producer and teacher; Kobna Holdbrook-Smith actor, director, producer, writer and campaigner/founding member of Act for Change; and Artistic Director of Spare Tyre Theatre Company, Arti Prashar.

Thanks to: Susie McKenna, Judith Jacob, Janet Steel and Afridiziak who have donated Theatre Tokens and to Theatre 503 and Bristol Old Vic for donating a pair of theatre tickets. All proceeds from the raffle and ticket sales go to The Alfred Fagon Award. The Alfred Fagon Award is supported by The Peggy Ramsay Foundation.
