2016 was a year of rebellion and radicals. The Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s victory in America is creating major political change. And there’s likely more to come with elections in France, Germany, Holland and Italy as well as the possibility of a new referendum in Scotland. Where is this push for change coming from and what might happen in the future? What are the opportunities in this period of radicalism and rebellion?
 
Douglas Carswell will be in conversation with Jamie Bartlett and Claudia Chwalisz on Rebels and Radicals at the Bristol Festival of Ideas on Saturday 27th May at 12.30PM.
