Hastings Humanists will meet on April 14 to debate whether the UK should Remain a member of the EU or Leave.

The debate will be held at the White Rock Hotel from 7.30pm - 9.30pm.

The form of the debate will be an opening vote followed by an opening statement For and Against the motion, then an open floor discussion where everybody is welcome to make their own point, then a final summing up and final vote.

Everybody is welcome to participate as long as they uphold our Humanist tradition of treating opposing opinions with respect.

Mike Lynott of Hastings Humanists, said: “Our intension is to hold a debate on this contentious issue in which we will avoid tribal politics and personal attacks, and examine the issues. Hopefully shedding a little light and dissipating some of the heat by squarely facing up to the fact that this have wide ramifications for many years to come.”

Admission is £5 at the door. £3 for members.
