In this section you will find information regarding the news, events, art culture, history and lots more about Swarthmore.

This year marks a 110 years of Swarthmore! And to celebrate we are embarking on a series of debates.

Swarthmore was established in 1909, and was always a place for open debate, challenge and providing people with an opportunity to speak out for a social injustice.

By holding these debates we are looking to bring some of that original philosophy back to Swarthmore, and offer an opportunity for open public debate in Leeds on topical issue

There will be a range of informed speakers to talk through the motion with a vote at the beginning and then again at the end. There will also be an opportunity for questions from the audience.

Come and join us and have your say.

This is a Free event with a suggested donation of £3.
