Join us for a night of hilarity, wit and fun as academics take on the students at the annual Godfrey Tanner Great Debate. Having succumbed to a loss last year, the students are out for revenge in 2016!

The comedy-style battle of wits is held in honour of well-known UON Classics lecturer, the late Emeritus Professor Godfrey Tanner who passed away in 2002.

The debate is a fundraiser for the Godfrey Tanner Memorial Scholarship, which funds an annual scholarship to assist students who are facing hardship. The scholarship was established Professor Tanner himself, but is now supported by donations from alumni, UON staff, students and the community.

Bravely taking on the students are lecturers Kcasey McLoughlin, Stacey Baxter and Associate Professor Neil Foster. Lining up for the Students team is Phill Johnson, Elyse Hudson and Giacomo Arnott.

Entry is by gold coin donation at the door.
