Come and meet the Young European of the Year in Sevenoaks this Saturday evening!
By Alan Bullion
Young European of the Year 2018 is British - and she's heading for Sevenoaks this weekend
On Saturday 21st April Sevenoaks hosts a big event in the debate on Brexit. Top of the bill is Professor AC Grayling who campaigns on the democratic challenges in the UK government's approach. He speaks on the next steps in the fight against Brexit.
Supporting Anthony will be Madeleina Kay, designer, singer and campaigner winner of the title of Young European of 2018. She satirises contradictions in the governments attempts to implement Brexit, and calls for young people to be given a real voice in their future. Last month she visited County Hall in Maidstone. We will hear some of her music on Saturday.
Kent experts will also be on the programme:
- Hugh Mercer from Sevenoaks on legal impacts for both UK and EU citizens
- Dr Carlo Berti, BMA consultant, on implications for healthcare and the NHS
- Dick Dunsmore on trade and transport in Kent
Anthony Grayling and Madeleina Kay are pictured above at the People's Vote rally.
