The Government has announced the official name of the UK-wide festival which marks the UK's departure from the European Union.

Initially conceived by former Prime Minister Theresa May, the idea was dubbed the 'Festival of Brexit' at first.

It is now officially called 'Unboxed: Creativity in the UK' which will be celebrated with a number of science, art, technology and engineering exhibitions across the country.

The plan is for it to take place from March to October 2022.

On its official website it describes its exhibitions as "10 awe-inspiring new ideas, shaped across science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics by brilliant minds working in unexpected collaborations".

It adds: "Unmissable events and unforgettable experiences are coming to places and spaces right across the UK: from coastal towns and city centres to breathtaking areas of natural beauty".

Martin Green, Chief Creative Director behind the project, said: "Unboxed represents an unprecedented and timely opportunity for people to come together across the UK and beyond and take part in awe-inspiring projects that speak to who we are and explore the ideas that will define our futures."

What events will be part of the Unboxed festival?

Events will include the 'See Monster' exhibition at Weston-super-Mare which will highlight innovation around renewable energy.

There is also 'Dandelion' which is all about nature and will see participants sow and grow crops across Scotland.

'Green Space Dark Skies' plans for 20,000 people to light up the land in a celebration of the great outdoors.

The programme will include projects in Caernarfon, Hull, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow, Inverness, Swansea, Leicester, Newcastle, and Blackpool, among other British towns and cities.
