Brexit? What's that? No problem...!

Posted by Nick Hennegan on Monday, April 8, 2019 Under: Nick Hennegan
It looks like the UK might be exiting the European Union - So a British Exit - Brexit! I love the wordplay, if not the concept.  I won't get into the politics here (nah, I don't think it's a great idea to leave, and I do remember when I was a kid we were known as the 'poor man of Europe' hence us joining the EEC, but...!) however, we have people from around the world come on our literary pub celebration, and one or two people have mentioned they'd heard stories of rationing and hoarding and weren't sure if it was a good time to come to Britain. I think London Mayor Sadiq Khan says it best. "London is Open." And it is. If you're thinking of coming to the UK, don't worry. There are, as always, some wild press reports, but the reality is it's had little effect on 'normal' people apart from the fact we're all a bit fed up of it and wonder where is David Cameron (ex-PM who started this whole thing!) But it's business as usual for us London Writers. So see you soon, hopefully!

About Us

Nick Hennegan Hello. I'm Nick Hennegan and I started the London Literary Pub Crawl. Most of the blogs on here will be by me. I've always written but my first theatrical success was an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Henry V' ( I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. ( This pub crawl is really more a promenade theatre performance than a tour and I'm running it with a bunch of enthusiastic local actors and writers. I love sharing my passion for the area and the artists. I also present a radio show on Resonance 104.4fm - London's Arts Station and a podcast on our site. If you haven't visited us in London yet, I hope you'll come soon. And feel free to leave comments or email me at nick @ - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
