T END Debating Matters Championships: Oxfordshire Championship 2019

DEBATING MATTERS CHAMPIONSHIP

Oxfordshire Championship 2019 -- Thursday 27 June 2019

We are delighted to have Magdalen College School and Oxford Festival of the Arts as partners for the Oxfordshire Championship 2019, which will be held at the Oxford Union.

Magdalen College School was founded in 1480 by William Waynflete, who wanted to found a school of an entirely new kind: a school that would be at the heart of that new and exciting proposition, the university. Quickly, MCS became one of the country’s leading schools. Today’s MCS is the proud inheritor of these traditions.

Oxford Festival of the Arts is a fortnight of events across the city, which this year takes place from Friday 21 June to Sunday 7 July 2019. The Festival offers a broad programme of performances, workshops and talks across the fields of music, theatre, art, film and literature. It aims to celebrate Oxford’s diverse communities and offer something for everyone, whatever their age, background or artistic experience.
