Three events focused on Scottish women at Edinburgh Festival 2023…

Wonder Women: Dame Elizabeth Blackadder – A Celebration | The Scottish Gallery | until 26 Aug
Well, we are in Scotland and we love women, so why not have a full tips section that highlights the work of a native, female trio? The first of these women is sadly no longer with us, but her body of extraordinary work is, and that’s what this exhibition in the Edinburgh Art Festival celebrates, highlighting work from seven decades of the artist’s career.

In Conversation With Dame Evelyn Glennie OBE | Scottish Parliament | 9 Aug (pictured)
Coming up soon is the Edinburgh Festival Of Politics, which takes place at the Scottish Parliament and packs lots of events into a relatively short space of time. And the reason I am talking about this is because, yes, our next tipped event is on as part of the politics fest in partnership with the EIF. It’s an in conversation with insanely talented percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie. Click here for info and tickets.

Jenny Colgan: Flights Of Fancy | Baillie Gifford Sculpture Court | 13 Aug
All the different bits of the wider Edinburgh Festival will soon be up and running, won’t they? We’ve just recommended something from the Art Festival and something from the Politics Festival, and now, by god, we’re talking about a Book Festival event. It’s a goodie, too: you get to spend time with the excellent Jenny Colgan who will be talking to Sally Magnusson about her new book. Click here for info and tickets.
