THE Nation documentary series has been a huge hit across Scotland – and is still packing out venues.

Edinburgh Yes Hub’s screening and day of events tomorrow has sold a whopping 579 tickets, with only a few remaining.

As well as the screening of Lesley Riddoch and Phantom Power films’s Nation: Norway, there will be music, stalls and a visit from special guest Joanna Cherry MP.

Edinburgh Yes Hub manager Mike Blackshaw said: “I’m amazed. So is Lesley. My target was that if we got 300, we’d have a good audience – but we’re going to pack the place.

"We got great co-operation from the Queen’s Hall, which shows their professionalism, and the ticket prices are very reasonable – so we’re not going to make money out of it. But the event needs a big audience. We’ve encouraged people to bring along someone who’s not quite so sure about independence.

“It’s winter. I think the Yes movement wants something to do.

“We’ve got people coming from Eyemouth, Inverness, Ayr – the Norwegian envoy is coming too.

Doors will open at the Queen’s Hall at 1pm, with the “outstanding” Yes Choir singing in the cafe.

The Stennis Historical Society, the Yes Hub, IndyCan Edinburgh and the Scottish Socialist Party will all have stalls.

You’ll be able to purchase your Sunday National there, too, and the group run a monthly online magazine.

The hall will open up at 1.30pm, with the fantastic Musica Nordica on stage. That will be followed by the film. Post-showing there will be a Q&A with SNP MP Cherry, and Andrew Gordon will play in the cafe.

Blackwell said it would be an excellent chance for networking, and that the event would help “to give people ammunition” in arguing the case for Yes.

He added: "The bigger percentage of people going are pensioners. Everyone thought that pensioners all voted no. The vast majority of people are taking the concession. I was delighted with that."

The Edinburgh Yes Hub also has a major event upcoming on May 18, in St Katharine’s Park in Edinburgh – After Independence: Trident Goes. Expect tens of stalls and a big turnout.

Tickets for tomorrow’s event are £5, £3 conc. Details on
