Yet again Anne Jarvis is organising a Burns Night Supper at her apartment in Ixelles open to all LibDems and friends.
So come and join LibDems in Belgium for an evening of haggis, whisky, poetry and song. Burns has plenty to say about politics - so come and add your liberal interpretation on the 261st anniversary of Burn's birth and spread the gift of letting us see ourselves as others see us.
Clearly planning is needed, haggis needs hunting, oats need toasting - so please RSVP as soon as possible. Numbers are limited.
As soon as you RSVP Anne will get back to you with address details and anything else you need to know or you can contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

ABOUT THE EVENT
Brexit will have profound but very different consequences for individual parts of the U.K. A majority of people in Gibraltar, Northern Ireland and Scotland voted against Brexit in the 2016 referendum. Still, they will have to exit from the European Union, too. Gibraltar and Northern Ireland, both sharing land borders with the EU, will be very directly affected whereas Wales is at risk to be the region economically most impacted in the U.K.. Moreover, Brexit has already reignited debate about Scottish independence and Irish reunification. How do Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar prepare for Brexit? Which specific challenges are they dealing with? And toward which outcome will they work in the upcoming negotiations on the future relationship between the U.K. and the EU?
Join us for a multi perspective discussion on these and more questions on the eve of the UK's departure from the EU.
Join liberals from parties across Europe for an evening of political discussions and debate.
