Thursday 2200 GMT
Early results from around the country are expected to start arriving .While it is only the overall share of the vote gained by either Leave or Remain which really matters, these results should give a flavour of which way the country is turning.
Watch out for Sunderland, with its Labour-voting, blue collar demographic, as it is expected to be a key indicator of whether the Leave campaign has swayed this demographic, according to Open Europe, the think tank.
The final results are expected to come in, with a declaration of the result made in Manchester. If UK voters have opted for Leave, the political fallout of the campaign, particularly the divisions exposed in the ruling Conservative Party, is expected to escalate quickly.
Friday 0800 GMT
London's stockmarkets are due to open. In the event of a Leave vote, trading may be suspended, according to a warning from UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne.
If the Leave campaign has triumphed, this is likely to be one of the year's busiest trading days as market participants digest the result.
