Brexit Night: What we know, and what we don’t know

When: Thursday, February 21st 2019, 7.30pm-11.00pm

Where: Frederiks, Hope Street, Liverpool

Since the referendum of June 2016, the UK government has had an almost exclusive focus on Brexit – yet, with the UK due to leave the EU on March 29th, major questions still need to be answered, and crucial details remain unclear.

In our special Brexit event, we’ll hear from a range of experts about what Brexit means for their area of expertise, what we know about what impact Brexit will have, and what we still don’t know.

Speaking this evening will be:The EU flag, blue with 12 gold stars in a circle in the centre

  • Dr Sarah Clement on Brexit and the Environment
  • Dr Ruxandra Trandafoiu on Brexit and EU nationals in the NW of England
