The event, entitled Looking after your Farming Business - Post Brexit, takes place at Debenham Leisure Centre (IP14 6BL) and follows a similar talk held before the referendum, when speakers debated the merits of Brexit.

Speakers at the event are honorary finance director for the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association Grant Pilcher, a chartered accountant, chartered tax adviser and a trust and estates practitioner at Larking Gowen, and National Farmers’ Union East director Robert Sheasby. The chair is Bury St Edmunds farmer George Gittus.

The event takes place on Friday, March 31 from 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets cost £10, including a hog roast, with proceeds going to the charity, which helps farmers in need. To book, email amy@athelingtonhall.co.uk or pay on the door.
