Britain Talks 2019
the third anniversary of the Brexit referendum, the Mirror, the Daily
Express and dozens of regional newspapers from all over the UK called on
Brits to meet with a neighbor.
With “Britain Talks”, they wanted
to bring people back into conversation. Reaching out to a diverse
audience, Britain Talks happened in partnership with the Mirror and the
Daily Express, which have traditionally had very different readerships.
Through the publishing group Reach PLC, the project has also been
conducted regionally across England and Wales in partnership with media
including the Manchester Evening News, the Liverpool Echo, the Bristol
Post, the Newcastle Journal, WalesOnline and 25 other regional news
