Annie Lennox provides HIV/AIDS campaign update
Festival of Politics 2010
This article is from 2010.
A regular visitor to the Scottish Parliament come August time, former Eurythmics co-leader Annie Lennox takes part in two events. First up she is joined by comic Mark Thomas and former war correspondent turned independent MP Martin Bell in Power of the People. Here the trio will debate whether politics should be the exclusive preserve of our elected representatives and democratic institutions or is there a place for those not knee-deep in a political background to get more involved in parliamentary life and governing?
And in her second appearance, Lennox returns to Holyrood to provide an update on developments in her SING Campaign, which fights HIV/AIDS in South Africa. She’ll be reporting on the positive impact SING and the Treatment Action Campaign continue to have on people living with HIV.
Power of the People, 18 Aug, 1pm, £6 (£3.50); SING Campaign, 19 Aug, 6.30pm, £6 (£3.50).
