Event description

Description

With the British people having voted to leave Europe and the Article 50 letter submitted to the European Council, what now lies ahead for the United Kingdom? What opportunities will there be for us to grow our economy and raise our global reputation? And having taken this big step, what are the pitfalls?

Join local MP Sir Julian Brazier TD and President of the East Kent European Movement Sir Geoffrey Nice QC for a timely and lively debate looking at the challenges ahead, in which they will offer their insights into what the future may hold.

The debate will be followed by a half hour questions and answers session.

Tea and coffee will be made available on the night.

Photographs of the event will be taken on the night.
