The Festival of Politics

In partnership with Scotland’s Futures Forum

The Scottish Parliament hosted its 19th Festival of Politics in August 2023. Extra events, run in partnership with the Edinburgh International Festival, took place before, during and after these dates.

Featuring sessions on politics, current affairs, social and environmental issues, the festival offers people in Scotland an opportunity to come to their Parliament and discuss the issues facing society today.

Catch up by watching recordings of the 2023 sessions on YouTube.

The Festival of Politics will return 19-23 August 2024.
