As our campaign has grown since the June 2016 referendum, we have held many different events and meetings  - including our highly successful and well-attended rally at the Labour Party Conference and a fantastic evening event at the Brighton Dome.

 

Currently we have several initiatives underway, including our Europe Corner stall in New Road outside the Unitarian Church, usually one Saturday per month. We get to know each other, talk to passers-by and share information. It’s all part of our work to be visible, to get Brightonians to support our campaign and make it grow!

 

We are also linking up with numerous other groups that are around the county and beyond: Eastbourne, Newhaven, Lewes, Sevenoaks and more. We aim to change hearts and minds in Sussex and beyond.

 

Some of our members run a regular club evening: Club Europe Express, at the Rose Hill Tavern. This is a chance to socialise with other Europeans; to exchange views and ideas; and to enjoy music, poetry and other cultural activities.

 

If you have ideas for other activities, please contact us!
