Thursday 14 March 2019
6:00PM - 7:00PM

Since 2016’s divisive referendum result, James Meek, who has been described as ‘the George Orwell of our times’, has been searching for the stories and consequences of this rupture. 

He discusses the desire to leave with farmers and fishermen, reports as a Cadbury’s factory is shut down and moved to Poland, and charts how the NHS is coping with austerity and an aging population. 

Dreams of Leaving and Remaining is urgent reporting from the frontline of the crisis and although he may not find any easy answers that will satisfy Brexiteers or Remainers, he paints a masterly portrait of an anxious nation.

Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
