A Festival of Brexit?

On Tuesday 5th November, Harriet was interviewed by James O’Malley, journalist and creator of the Pod Delusion podcast about the government’s idea for a 2022 Festival of Brexit, which, despite being subject to much criticism when it was first announced in 2018, was revealed this week still to be in development. Harriet talked about the critical reception of the Festival of Britain in 1951 and the Millennium Dome in 2000 and the potential for an event in 2022 to be successful. Listen to the conversation here at 14.50.
