As things stand at the moment, the UK will leave the EU, by default, on or before 31 January 2020.
The timeline below sets out various events before that date.
The next General Election will be held on Thursday 12 December 2019. Political Parties of all flavours will be campaigning hard in the coming weeks.
Brent4Europe will be handing out leaflets, knocking on doors and meeting MPs. If you are able to help with any of these activities, please contact the organiser, Karin.
Please bookmark this page and keep coming back for updates and changes in the coming months.
