Britain Talks 2019

On 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 outlets.
