UK Government funds Brexit Big Bandmain
The UK Department for International Trade has offered a grant to composer Matthew Herbert and his Brexit Big Band. He will share £181,944 with 11 other artists.
The Department is headed by arch-Brexiteer Liam Fox.
Herbert says: ‘The message from parts of the Brexit campaign were that as a nation we are better off alone. I refute that idea entirely and wanted to create a project that embodies the idea of collaboration from start to finish.’
