Event details

Will Brexit boost jobs? Or wreck the NHS? And what about food shortages?

From strawberries to passports, the broadcaster and journalist Gavin Esler presents a no-nonsense guide to the most momentous change in British life for decades. In seven succinct chapters, he sets out how leaving the European Union will affect:
• Food and diet
• Health and the NHS
• Jobs and industry
• Education
• Travel to Europe

From the food markets of Kent to NHS operating theatres to the boardrooms of big employers, Brexit throws up many surprises. Some are deeply unpleaslant. Brexit Without the Bullshit is not about the Brexit you were told you were getting. It’s about the one that is arriving.

Please note the change of venue from that previously advertised.  This event will now be held in the Piazza Building, Campus East.
