Organised by the team behind Now Then, the Festival of Debate returns this spring to help shift some clouds from around the real issues and clear the path towards answers to questions that can sometimes seem too big to ask.

A series of talks, discussions, music and theatre performances, and film screenings, spread across Sheffield and South Yorkshire, the Festival of Debate aims to get people together to think about democracy and ideas for change. This year's headline speakers will be two of the UK's best loved climate activists: TV presenter Chris Packham and author and journalist George Monbiot.
