UKIP leader Nigel Farage is to speak in the North East next month as part of his nationwide tour to highlight why he believes the UK should leave the European Union.
Mr Farage, who is co-president of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group (EFDD) in the European Parliament will be at the event at The Sage Gateshead on Monday October 12.
The event starts at 7pm.
UKIP’s North East MEP Jonathan Arnott, who will also be speaking, said: “It is crucial that we should have control over who comes into our country but, while we are in the EU, we are powerless to stem those flooding in from the continent.”
Tickets for the event, which are free, can be obtained at www.sagegateshead.com/debate or by ringing 0191 443 4661.
A £2.50 booking fee will apply.
