NICOLA Sturgeon will take part in a political talk show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

The former first minister will be interviewed by broadcaster Iain Dale after she resigned as the country's leader in February

The Scotsman reports she will be appearing at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) on August 10.

LBC presenter Dale said: “I’m excited to welcome Nicola Sturgeon back to my All Talk series of her third appearance since she made her Fringe debut with us in 2019.

“Her political journey since then has been fascinating and I can’t wait to talk to her about what the future holds for her and the party she led through such tumultuous years.”

As part of his series, Dale will also be interviewing RMT leader Mick Lynch on August 5 and former Labour MP Chris Mullin and journalist Sasha Swire on August 6.

Dale continued: “It’s also hugely topical to have RMT leader Mick Lynch joining me for the first time, as rail strikes look set to continue for some time yet.

“And for fans of politics, the double act of Chris Mullin and Sasha Swire joining me to talk about their fascinating writing and careers will be quite a treat.

“It’s wonderful to be returning to the EICC as part of the Pleasance programme after so many sell-out shows there last year.”

On Friday night, Sturgeon is due to host an event with author and comedian Janey Godley.

The Glasgow comic previously told The National how the former first minister’s love of reading was something she greatly admired.

Godley said: “She devours books the way I devour books so I’m looking forward to this and I’m hoping she enjoys it.

“To have a first minister who’s very much a voracious reader is important. I mean when you look at Trump you know he’s not even had a colouring book.”
