To mark the 7th anniversary of the Brexit referendum with no visible signs of any Brexit benefits on the horizon, we are embarking on a UK Rejoin tour, to celebrate the benefits of joining the EU anew and to explain the pathways to ending Brexit. Please support this tour and let us know where you want us to go in the UK. It has cost us £1000 to put the show on the road and obviously we’ll need travel expenses and subsistence.

Brexit Central 22 June
We began the tour at Clacton for BBC Question Time on Thursday 22 June. Despite the BBC’s attempt to fill the hall with a few remaining Brexiteers of Clacton, our experience on the street was quite different. Hardly anyone said that Brexit was a success and most wanted a return to the EU, now that they realised that they were lied to. On leaving the town hall, many of the participants at BBQ QT stayed on to listen to us, with some wanting selfies with the Bollocks to Brexit Mini, as they listened to our song of Brexit buyer’s remorse. “Alo Vera – Brexit’s Comin’ ‘Ome” is written through the eyes of a leave voter who now regrets being lied to – watch the whole film – the best part comes at the end !!
City Hall 23 June
On hearing that Rishi Sunak plans to waste more of our taxes taking Sadiq Khan to court for flying EU flags on his building, we arranged at short notice to flag bomb City Hall in Docklands. A great crew of insurgents showed up within just a few hours of announcing the event. We delivered a keynote address around our ‘Brexit Iceberg’, a musical performance of our protest songs and engaged loads of young people. Out of several hundred people we spoke with only two people insisted that Brexit was a good thing although they declined to explain why.
29 July – The Cinque Ports Tour – From Sandwich to Hastings calling at all stops.
7 September – The Brighton Belle – From Seaford to Brighton where we will give a keynote event at The European Movement in the evening.
