Intelligence Squared Membership

Please order by Monday 18th December 2017 for delivery of the e-certificate before Christmas.

It’s always a full house at Intelligence Squared. So becoming a Member is a clever move, as that way you guarantee yourself a seat at every one of our events.

2017 has been a sensational year for Intelligence Squared, with live events covering Donald Trump’s presidency, the facts about fake news, the realignment of British politics, AI and virtual reality, and history’s greatest speeches. Star names on our stage have included Malala Yousafzai, Sheryl Sandberg, Thomas Friedman, Daniel Dennett, Carey Mulligan, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Jimmy Wales, former CIA Director Michael Hayden and Jeremy Irons.

We are looking forward to an exciting spring season in 2018, and have already lined up a series of major debates on whether the tech giants Google and Facebook should be broken up; the supposed moral superiority of the Left; and the generational divide between young and old, in which Jeremy Paxman and Esther Rantzen go head to head. We are also staging a conversation between comedy writer Armando Iannucci and acclaimed pianist James Rhodes on the transformative power of music; and a discussion on globalism and nationalism with celebrated historian Simon Schama. There’s much more in the pipeline, with new events to be launched soon.

Price: £180
