After a successful response to our ‘One Team, to One IV’ alumni sponsorship trial, we are pleased to extend this invitation to all our alumni. All that we ask is that you sponsor one team to one IV of your choice. You can specify the type of team (e.g. novice) if you prefer as well.

It really is a case of ‘every little helps’ — every team we can send means we can afford to send more teams to more IVs so a greater number of people of access to debating. If you are interested in sending a team, please contact the Secretary. If you do not mind which IV you sponsor, please feel free to make a general donation to the society. We will, of course, keep you updated on the progress of your team!


We are hoping to organise an alumni dinner and debate. If you’re interested in either of these, or have suggestions for other activities, please contact the Secretary.

If you find yourself in Manchester on a Tuesday or Thursday evening, feel free to pop down to watch the public debate or participate in training. We would be delight to see you!
