'Scottish Six' starts at 6pm today!

AFTER much talk about the need to debate Scotland’s future, and the prospect of a Scottish debate-free zone on the Fringe, land reform campaigner Andy Wightman and myself have decided to join forces and stick our heids o’er the parapet. So we’ll have a show on at six o’clock nine weekday nights across August 14-24 as part of the Festival of Spirituality and Peace - writes Lesley Riddoch

"It’s called The Scottish Six - debates you don’t get on TV. But the BBC and Scottish media will figure only fleetingly in the first gig. Our much bigger concern is the way that inequality, entitlement and disempowerment disfigure Scotland and limit the ways most Scots can imagine the future. Each night, land campaigner Andy Wightman (Who Owns Scotland and The Poor Had no Lawyers) will kick off The Scottish Six with a characteristically hard-hitting look at how the nexus of money, politics and property has created an unequal society in which too many people are powerless to make a positive contribution."

More here. Runs from 6-7pm, 14-17th and 20-24th August in the Hall at St John's Church (Venue 127). Tickets on the door or via the Hub. £6 (£4 concessions).
