‘Festival of Brexit’ announces 10 teams to orchestrate £120m event

A celebratory festival to take place following the UK’s recent departure from the European Union is set to go ahead next year.

The £120m event is currently titled Festival UK 2022 with a final name expected to be confirmed later this year.

It was announced during Theresa May’s time as Prime Minister, and is backed by Boris Johnson’s current Conservative government.

Organisers for the festival announced on Tuesday (23 March) that 10 teams had successfully pitched ideas for the event, and have been given the go-ahead to move forward with planning.

The event has often been referred to as the “Festival of Brexit”, a term first used by Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, though organisers are keen to downplay any political aspect to the event itself.
