first_img16 speakers will be in-person, as will the LGBTQ+ panel and all debates but one. Events will be held in the debating chamber at reduced capacity and a one-way system will be put in place. Tickets for in-person events will be released on Fixr to avoid crowded queuing, and the recordings will be released on YouTube shortly afterwards. Beatrice Barr, President of the Oxford Union, stated to Cherwell: “I’m thrilled with the efforts of our committee to put together such an exciting series of events this term, in keeping with our commitment to engage in forward-thinking and responsible conversations. We’re lucky to be able to bring our members a programme of both in-person and online events, in line with government guidelines – though we are, of course, ready for everything to change at very short notice! I hope that members old and new will take advantage of everything the Union has to offer this term, in whatever way they feel comfortable.” Additionally, the Union Bar and Library will be open, both operating at reduced capacity. The library may be booked online in advance for morning and afternoon slots. The bar will abide by government guidelines on hours and social distancing, with measures including table service only and an order-ahead app.While the membership fee has not changed, it has not increased as it usually does year-on-year. DEBATESThis house has no confidence in Her Majesty’s GovernmentThis house is not proud to be British (Black History Month debate)This house believes America is a failed state Osi Umenyiora – American Football Player Ken Burns – Documentary Maker 3rd WeekDave Franco – Actor and Director Prof. Leslie Thomas QC – Barrister representing family of Mark DugganScott Mills – Radio 1 presenterFrank Gardner OBE – BBC Security Correspondent Andrew McCabe – Former FBI DirectorGeneral H.
