You don’t have to be resident in these towns to attend the events; they are open for any British citizen who is interested in finding out more about the subject.
These events are part of the efforts made by the British Consulates in Spain to meet with British citizens across Spain, to ensure that the concerns they raise around healthcare, pensions and residency rights are understood by the UK negotiating team and reflected in their discussions with our EU partners about our departure from the EU.
