A Birmingham restaurant known for its influential business customers is launching a series of conversations to discuss matters important to the city.

Starting with an EU referendum debate next month (MAY), prominent city opinion leaders will share their views in an attempt to convince Birmingham of their argument in the special event hosted by Opus at Cornwall Street.

Amongst the panel of business, creative, education and political professionals is Gisela Stuart, Labour MP for Edgbaston and chair for ‘Vote Leave’ campaign, Saqib Bhatti, Director of Younis Bhatti & Co Ltd and Secretary General of Muslims for Britain, Professor Simon Green, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean at Aston University and Fiona Allan, Artistic Director and CEO of Birmingham Hippodrome.

Ann Tonks, director at Opus at Cornwall Street, said: “Many of the city’s most important conversations happen over lunch or dinner in our restaurant, so what better venue to bring those conversations from private to public than with our ‘Opus In Conversation’ series.

“We know that the EU referendum is what businesses are talking about most - especially as the uncertainty it brings with it is affecting business decisions right now - and so we wanted to gather a mix of interesting professionals from the city to hear their thoughts on the matter. With our outspoken panel, we know this is going to be a spirited and stimulating conversation.”

The EU Referendum debate at Opus at Cornwall Street is a free ticketed event and will take place on Friday 20th May from 5pm. Audience members are encouraged to field questions to the panel before the discussion. For tickets, call 0121 200 2323.

Following on from the EU debate, the restaurant’s next ‘Opus in Conversation’ evening will be discussing the importance of bees to our future and what Birmingham can do to encourage them in an urban environment.
