Row between ‘Festival of Brexit’ chief and Nick Robinson

The director of the £120million ‘Festival of Brexit’ insisted today it had been ‘very successful’ in a row over whether it had drawn just five per cent of its hoped visitors.

Unboxed aimed for 66 million people to go to its attractions, but only three million have come so far.

But in a tit-for-tat interview this morning executive director Phil Batty insisted the number was not a target – bafflingly describing instead as a ‘creative ambition’.

The unusual exchange happened on Radio 4’s Today programme between Mr Batty and Nick Robinson.

He insisted 18 million people took part in events overall, including those broadcast online and through virtual reality.

Mr Batty said: ‘These cultural experiences have showcased the very best of science, the very best of tech and the very best of the arts through live and through digital.’

But Mr Robinson pressed ‘That wasn’t the original target was it, the original target was for 66million visitors?’
