Manchester IV

The Manchester IV is our annual InterVarsity debating competition. It’s the biggest competition in the North of England and attracts participants from all around Europe and beyond! The format is five rounds of British Parliamentary debate with seven minutes speeches, and a break to Semi-finals. Pro-Am and English as Second Language finals will be held subject to availability.

We hold the competition in mid-February each year and lasts for two days. Follow our Facebook page or email our IV Convener at for more information, and we look forward to seeing you at the next Manchester IV!
