Award-winning and best-selling author, Professor of International History at Cambridge and Festival Patron David Reynolds, believes that Brexit is a crisis of national identity which has been a long time in the making and not, as often perceived, a saga of British liberation or a Westminster drama. Challenging the familiar narrative of ‘our island story’, he presents an unconventional view of where we’ve come from involving two islands and several stories. Join him for an exciting journey through history, investigating how Britain’s sense of national identity has been shaped and contested and how that saga has brought us to the era of Brexit.
