Another fascinating Festival day

TODAY sees another fascinating blend of performance, poetry and workshops at the Festival of Spirituality and Peace here in Edinburgh.

The day kicks off at 11am with Dances of Universal Peace in the Chapel at St John's Church (Venue 127) - an opportunity to link inner and outer journeys in movement and body connection.

This is followed by more Sacred Space with Ben Kearsley in the Church from 12.30pm, and Worship at One at (you guessed it 1pm!).

Many people will be working in some relaxation and unwinding, not to mention fabulous food and tea, in the Persian Tent Village, before during and after those sessions.

Leave to Remain, which uses live music, ritual and storytelling to create a surprisingly uplifting performance about bereavement, follows at 2pm, again in the Chapel.

Then it's What's the Time, Mr Wolf? at 4pm in the Church Hall, with Debi Gliori. The award-winning author shares her new children's book.

Next up is a poetry treat with the StAnaza Showcase in the Church.

At 6pm it's more Scottish Six in the Hall, as Lesley Riddoch and Andy Wightman take us on a journey through Scotland's past, present and future, with a "people's eye view" on the issues that often don't make the headlines.

At 8pm we turn our attention to Daoism and the Way Forward in the Hall.

Last, but certainly not least, is a further knockout performance from South African acapella sensations Soweto Entsha (pictured) in the Church.

All in all, an ideal day out!
