National Debate: Class - an unequal nation?

Thu 2 Nov, 5.45pm
Running Time: 1 hour

A panel explores how class affects our chosen path in life, and how easy is it to break out of the social hierarchy. Is the class system still relevant in 21st-century Britain? The National Theatre presents a debate inspired by the production of Saint George and the Dragon. Speakers include Dawn Foster (author of Lean Out), Abid Hussain (Director of Diversity, Arts Council England), David Lammy MP, Mike Savage (Martin White Professor of Sociology, LSE), and chaired by Guardian joint Political Editor Anushka Asthana. 

Following our National Debate: Class, you can continue the debate informally with the bardeblah team in the Cottesloe Room (6.50-7.20pm). bardeblah is a lively and sociable debating game, where you are encouraged to suspend your judgement, enjoy the rhetoric, and appreciate both sides of an argument! Tickets are free, no booking required.
