Brexit Vote Sound Effects Libraries

Since the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum in 2016, Brexit has become one of the most decisive political decision of present-day Europe. And no matter which side you belong to as a British Citizen - remain or leave - or what you think about it as an outsider, the months leading up to the (original) Brexit date of 29th March have been historical for British Parliament. In two so-called ‘meaningful votes’ the House of Commons decided whether to accept and ratify the Brexit withdrawal agreement that Prime Minister Theresa May had negotiated with the European Union. I decided to capture those historic moments in recent British history, went to Westminster just outside Parliament and recorded sounds of the scenery on the eves of the votes.

You can download the collections of my recordings as two sound libraries for free under the CC0 license - all I ask is to not sell them on their own or as part of a library or similar.
