    In the year commemorating the start of the first world war 100 years ago, how should the war be remembered? Was it, as education secretary Michael Gove believes, "a noble and just cause" defending freedom and liberal democracy? Or was it a slaughter that killed over 15 million people waged by imperial powers competing to carve up the world and its resources?

    This debate, organised by Stop the War Coalition and supported by No Glory, will address these issues, which are already causing widespread controversy.

    The debaters: Julian Brazier, Conservative MP for Canterbury; John Blake, history teacher and editor of Labour Teachers; Lindsey German, convenor of Stop the War; Jeremy Corbyn MP.

    The Great Debate · St James's Church, Picadilly · 7pm, 3 April · tickets from £3
