Waiting to begin

FOR those who are new to Just Festival, you may not have noticed. But those who have come to past Festival of Spirituality and Peace events will recognise it more readily.

We have a new stage set in the Hall at St John's - Venue 27 in Edinbugh's festival data, and the main venue for Just, on the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road - though there are 27 others, too, for some of our 129 events this year.

In 2013 there's been a bit of a switch around. Conversations and talks are in the Hall, whereas the Church itself is being used as the main performance space. The Hall itself houses a fine photo exhibition, In Sight of Peace, mostly mounted on the new white panels at the back. There's also a news stage and rig.

Here it is, all splendidly laid out for this evening's appearance by former bishop Richard Holloway and conversants on the future of religion...
