Charlotte Street Partners

In conversation with Gavin Esler

Thursday 18 March 2021

15:00 - 16:00

We are pleased to share with you the next instalment in our current series of events,

On Thursday 18 March at 3pm we will be joined by Gavin Esler, the award-winning television and radio broadcaster, novelist and journalist. 

In the spirit of looking to the future and what comes after, we will be discussing his latest book How Britain Ends: English Nationalism and the Rebirth of Four Nations, which is a forensic examination of the way in which resurgent English nationalism is pulling the UK apart. 

As we emerge from the harshest restrictions and, with Scottish parliamentary elections fast approaching, now is most certainly the time to be thinking about identity and the complicated nature of Britishness. 

As usual, the discussion will take place under the Chatham House Rule and we ask that you RSVP via the registration link above. Speaking with Gavin will be Katie Stanton, associate partner, who will pose some short introductory questions before chairing the audience Q&A. We expect to have finished proceedings by 4pm.
