Description

Islington In Europe invites you to…

“We need to talk about Europe”

An Evening of Celebration and Discussion


Marking 44 years since the UK joined the EEC, this event will take place against the backdrop of the ongoing campaign to keep the UK in or close to the European Union.

It will combine perspectives from a series of well-known speakers with eclectic European music, the New European newspaper, snacks from local European eateries and more.


Confirmed are:

Quentin Peel, former international affairs editor, Financial Times.

“The danger of contagion across the EU is now very real.”

Stephen Moss, feature writer, the Guardian.

“We had a referendum in 1975 to stay in the forerunner of the EU; we decided to leave in 2016. In my book that makes the referendum score 1-1, and there is still all to play for.”

John Hegley, performance poet, comedian, musician, songwriter and grandson of dancer with the Folies Bergère.

DJ Penny Metal, the original Mad Tunes DJ.

“Her passion for Eastern European and Russian music shines through in the eclectic sets she unleashes on her audiences.”

We’ll also want to hear from you ‘in discussion’ from the floor and on our Brexit message board.

The event is open to supporters of Islington In Europe and associated groups.

Tickets are free but space is limited so please register in advance via Eventbrite. A small donation on the door will be welcome to help cover costs.
