winners of the Great Shakespeare Debate 2007

Today is the BIG DAY, we have been planning for this day for many months, all over the country this morning people are setting out to come here. Well, at least 60 people are! What is so important about today? Today is the Great Shakespeare Debate when 12 teams of A level students come together to debate Shakespeare.

Does Romeo and Juliet encourage or condemn young love? Is Othello a weak man? Is Macbeth a coward and does Much Ado About Nothing have much to say about anything? These are just some of the topics under debate today.

Students are with us for two days of competitive debating culminating in the grand final tomorrow at 5.30pm….

The Great Shakespeare debate is run in partnership with the English Speaking Union (debating experts) and is made possible by sponsorship from the CAPITAL Centre (University of Warwick)
