The Scottish Parliament is proud to host our annual Festival of Politics and to present a programme which aims to provoke and inspire people of all ages and from every walk of life to listen, engage and debate.

This year’s Festival of Politics will be held between Thursday 10 and Saturday 12 October.

Each year we welcome key players in UK politics – politicians, journalists, academics and commentators – who share a common need to speak out about issues of political and social importance, which is why we’re delighted to host the Festival of Politics at the Scottish Parliament.
