|TAKING SIDES: OXFORD UNION DEBATE (OXFORD UNION DEBATING CHAMBER)
A classic Oxford experience is the Union debate. Two expert and passionate teams will battle it out on the question:
THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT WOMEN RUNNING SUBSISTENCE BUSINESSES ARE NOT ENTREPRENEURS
Audience members will have the chance to offer their own arguments between speaker four and speaker five. At the end, the audience will vote ‘aye’ or ‘no’, as decades of Oxonians have, by proceeding to the bar through one or the other door to the chamber.
