Book Festival Wants 'Debate, Not Hate' Says Barley

Posted at 7:39AM Friday 08 Aug 2014

The Edinburgh International Book Festival director has said there will be an "impartial" arena for political debate at the event – but no space for a "pugilistic boxing match".

Nick Barley has insisted Charlotte Square Gardens will allow space for issues such as next month's referendum, the conflict in Gaza and the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
