Whether you are currently undecided or want to challenge both sides to justify their case, the University of Bristol invites you to join the EU referendum debate. Our panel comprises two speakers who support the UK’s continued membership of the EU (Molly Scott-Cato, Green Party MEP for the South West, and Will Hutton, Principal of Hertford College, and highly influential economist) and two who argue for its withdrawal (Daniel Hannan, Conservative MEP for the South East, and the Labour MP Graham Stringer). Each will be invited to make a short defence of their case and will then answer questions from the audience in a Question Time-style debate. Come along to find out more about the issues, ideas and consequences of the referendum.
