Who is the greatest figure of all from Classical History and Mythology? Take part in the debate at our Classics Balloon Debate on Thursday 27th October at 7pm, here at Blackwell’s Bookshop and have your say!
Celebrate the worlds of Ancient Greece and Rome with us: immerse yourself in all things classical, philosophical, historical and mythological and enjoy our Classics Balloon Debate: In case you’ve not come across the concept before, a balloon debate involves a panel of speakers who are all speaking in the guise of a famous figure from History with the aim of justifying why they should not be thrown out of the hot-air balloon which is rapidly falling to Earth and needs to lose some excess weight quickly!
Participants – and the heroes they will be representing:
Bettany Hughes: Socrates
Harry Sidebottom: Diocletian
Armand D’Angour : Sappho
Adrian Goldsworthy: Julius Caesar
Peter Thonemann: Cleisthenes of Athens
Katharine Earnshaw: TBC
