About the Event

Britain is divided.

It is divided along Remainers and Brexiteers; divided amongst generations; divided amongst those who have, and those who have not. In such a divided and rancorous environment how are we to make sense of One Nation, One People? Has this become a platitude, or a statement of bigotry? The question of Nationhood and Nationalism is at the heart of the matter. How do the British people amongst all its diversity connect with these Isles and its multifaceted history.

What can we learn from India - a country with 1.3 billion people; with over 56 languages, spread over a landmass the size of Europe; and with more ethnic groups calling themselves Indian than almost any place on Earth. India is a State, but its people are now believing in a Nation. What, if anything, can we learn from the unique perspective of Indian Nationalism, which is rooted in an altogether different history to European notions.

Come and join us as we explore this fundamental question confronting a post BREXIT Britain.

Registration is essential and starts at 6:30pm
