On Sunday 10 June thousands of women and girls* will come together and process through the streets of Edinburgh to mark 100 years since women won the right to vote. They will march with beautiful hand crafted banners, made especially for the event by women in communities across Scotland from Shetland to Peebles.

Known for its fortnightly offerings of mainstream cinema releases, the Eastgate Theatre goes all independent on Thursday with a screening of Akong, a Remarkable Life – the extraordinary story of a Tibetan Buddhist master who fled his homeland and co-founded Samye Ling in Eskdalemuir, the first monastery of its kind in the west.
