Lively, topical, challenging, the Big Debates attract around 100 businesses and local organisations. There’s no better place to meet people from a wide range of businesses, charities and organisations in the city. Have your say, and be part of an influential audience.

It’s your chance to hear our expert panel address topical motions, give their opinions– and maybe influence them with your own - in an evening of lively, entertaining and enlightening debate.

Make yourself heard and chime in or choose to sit back and listen, as attendees and guests speak from the floor when we open the debate to the audience.

Each motion is chosen to inspire lively discussions and many topics are put forward by our members. Recent questions under the microscope have been whether Brighton should adopt the Living Wage; whether the night time economy is damaging the city’s brand; and whether Brighton & Hove should split up.

With ample opportunity for everyone who wants to voice their opinion, these events enable the Chamber to become more informed about what our members think, helping us to represent you better in the city.

All businesses are welcome, including those who are not Chamber members, and entry is free. However, seats are limited and early booking is strongly advised.
