Intelligence Squared Membership

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.

2016 was a sensational year for Intelligence Squared, with live events covering Brexit, Donald Trump, Obama’s legacy, the threat posed by Isis and the future of feminism. Star names on our stage have included Richard Dawkins, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Peter Frankopan, PJ O’Rourke, Sapiens author Yuval Noah Harari, Amanda Foreman, Jeremy Paxman and John Humphries.

We are looking forward to an exciting spring season in 2017, and have already lined up star New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, leading philosopher Daniel Dennett, visionary economist Jeffrey Sachs, and the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg. On the political front there will be debates on Russia and on Trump’s first 100 days; and for history lovers we will be pitting Queen Elizabeth I vs Queen Victoria. There’s much more in the pipeline, with new events which we will be launching soon.

Price: £180
