• Katie Hart

    Student & DM Alumnus

    University of Glasgow

    Since winning the 2012 Scotland and Northern Ireland Regional Final, Katie has been an active member of the alumni network, finding it a useful way of distracting herself from her actual work and a good excuse to be overly active on Twitter. Her involvement with DM has given her opportunities to chair at national and regional finals, co-ordinate zones at the Battle of Ideas and meet her greatest hero - Crimewatch’s Nick Ross. When she’s not at a debate, she’s usually studying for her Masters in Theatre and Performance at Queen Mary University of London or at the theatre or talking about theatre or thinking about theatre or wishing she was talking or thinking about theatre instead of whatever else she’s having to think or talk about.


Thursday 27 June:
Oxfordshire Championship at Oxford Union, in partnership with Magdalen College School and Oxford Festival of Arts

Friday 5 July:
North East Championship at Durham Sixth Form Centre
