Waiting to begin
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...
