Join our debate on the pros and cons for business of both staying in and leaving the European Union. 

April 21st 2016, 8-10am

Lowther Pavilion, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire FY8 5QQ

On June 23rd 2016, the UK votes on whether to leave the EU. It is the most important referendum for generations – but what would a vote to leave Europe mean for UK businesses?

BusinessCloud will bring together two panels of leading business people and politicians to discuss the implications of staying in the EU or taking the plunge to exit.

The Brexit Breakfast will take place during the St George’s Day Charity Festival in Lytham, which celebrates all things English, and will be chaired by BusinessCloud editor and award-winning journalist Chris Maguire.
