The Grayling lecture “Brexit: The next Steps in the Fight Against It“, will be on Saturday 21 April from 6.15 at New Beacon School Sevenoaks.

Professor Grayling is a committed Remainer and has spoken and written  extensively about why people voted to leave the European Union and why the UK should not do so.

There is more about Professor Grayling on his website.

After the lecture, Professor Grayling will take questions.

There will then be a Question Time Panel discussion on “Brexit and Kent – The Law, Trade, our NHS and the Young Voter“. There has been no Impact Assessment of the likely or potential effects of Brexit on Kent and it is high time we are more informed on this.

  • Dick Dunmore – Former scholar of Peterhouse Cambridge and a distinguished transport consultant.
  • Dr Carlo Berti – South East Coast Regional Council Executive member and a Consultant in Kent.
  • Madeleina Kay – Musician, author, political activist and campaigner.
