In the thick of it

This event is sold out.

Michael Gove is one of the central figures of the Brexit debate. Interviewed countless times over the past two years, BIF presents this unique opportunity to witness a major role reversal when the minister interviews the BBC’s former political editor and presenter on the Today programme, Nick Robinson.

Putting politics aside, we join in the fun as Gove puts Robinson on the spot.
