52% voted for Brexit, but how many will get the Brexit they want?

The Vice-Chancellor's Great Debate is a new event on the University calendar, and brings together a diverse panel of commentators to debate a topical theme. We have chosen a Brexit-related theme for this inaugural event that will coincide with the anniversary of the triggering of Article 50. Ritula Shah, Journalist and regular presenter of The World Tonight on BBC Radio 4, will moderate what promises to be a lively debate with questions from the floor.

Our panel of experts at present includes:

Professor Anand Menon - is Director of UK in a Changing Europe, providing an authoritative and independant reference point for those looking for information and insights about UK-EU relations.

Lord Michael Heseltine - is a conservative Ex-cabinet minister and former Deputy Prime Minister, he has been a leading voice in the remain camp and is against hard Brexit.

Mr James McGrory - is Director of Open Britain and has promised to 'fight against the hard, destructive and potentially chaotic Brexit path the Government has chosen.'

Richard Tice - As Co-Chairman of Leave means Leave Richard would like a swift, clean exit from the EU, leaving the single market and customs union and regaining control of our borders. 

Details of the full panel will be announced soon.
This is a free event and is open to everyone.
Please book your free ticket in advance as places are limited.
