23 Apr 2017 – 10:00

For many of us the prospect of post-brexit Britain looks incontrovertibly like the worst of times. Our panel of experts are here to discuss the process of leaving the European Union and its aftermath and to reflect on whether we could possibly envision a future that could be the best of times.
