Date: 14th March
Theme: Civil Liberty
This year’s question to be debated is: ‘What does Magna Carta mean to me?’
The entrant can choose to talk about Magna Carta or can pick an event, object, document, building, individual or group and explain why it has made an impact on their personal civil liberties, why it has wider historical significance and why it is more significant for them than Magna Carta.
Each competitor will be given five minutes to present their case and then field questions from the judges.
