What's the talk about?

Please take note of the changed date; we hope this doesn't cause any issue

You may remember - and hopefully came to! - our EU Referendum event back in May 2016 where Dr Phil Daniels (Newcastle) and Professor Anand Menon (Kings College London) partook in a chaired discussion on the positive and negatives of the EU, with the aim to bring extra clarity and insist to a difficult and hard to follow political campaign. As they say - the rest is history.

Ms May has decided that Article 50 should be triggered, and thus begin our exit negotiations from the EU, no later than the end of March 2017.

UPDATE: Anand has unfortunately had to stand down, we're currently arranging an alternative speaker to cover the same topic.


This is a free event, although donations to help fund Newcastle Skeptics in the Pub events are appreciated. We suggest £3, or whatever you can afford. Seats are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
