The big events in Scot­land over the next seven days ... and why you’d be crazy to miss them

Fes­ti­val

Re­turn­ing for lively dis­cus­sion and de­bate on the is­sues of the day is the Fes­ti­val Of Pol­i­tics, which runs from Oc­to­ber 10 to Oc­to­ber 13 at the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment in Ed­in­burgh.

Big names ap­pear­ing in­clude Mary Beard, Michael He­sel­tine, Mar­garet Hodge, Tom Devine, Ben Okri and Dar­ren McGar­vey (pic­tured, right), win­ner of the 2018 Or­well Prize for his book, Poverty Sa­fari.

Now in its 14th year, the fes­ti­val will cover top­ics such as hous­ing, dis­abil­ity, #MeToo, Brexit, a ro­bot econ­omy and a new Cold War.

The fes­ti­val will also host BBC’s Ques­tion Time from the par­lia­ment’s de­bat­ing cham­ber on Oc­to­ber 11.
