Climate Challenge Zone 'Weekly Spotlight'
Community groups across Scotland are working together to make their villages and towns greener places to live. Each week we are highlighting some of the great work being done by the Climate Challenge Zone exhibitors at the Big Tent.

First up, it's Edinburgh World Heritage.

The Take One Action Solar Cinema will include the following films:

Food Inc - exposing the unsavoury side of the US food industry

The Yes Men Fix the World - funnier and more useful than Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno, this guerrilla movie records for posterity the serious satirical work of the poker-faced American pranksters Andy Birnbaum and Mike Bonanno, who set out to expose the lies and misdemeanours of conglomerates (P French, the Guardian review)

No Impact Man- following a family who abandon their high consumption lifestyle for a no-net environmental impact for a year.

Take One Action will be looking after the cinema and they'll be introducing the films and welcoming discussion and workshops after.

One Planet Food Village programme looks great. This year we will definitely put Food on the agenda and on the table bringing farmers, consumers and activists together, food is one of the big topics at the BT Head Zone as well: from looking at the food system in the Fife Region, a talk from Nourish (the Scottish Local Food Network) to the global movement on Food Sovereignty. All this complemented with the the first BT Summer School , with one of the strands dedicated to Leadership Development for a One Planet Food System. More info on BT website.

Some great new acts just announced: SESSION A9 - TUNNG - THE CHAIR

Session A9 - a very special band which comprises the main players of several famous Scottish names will make an exclusive Scottish summer festival appearance at the Big Tent Festival. SessionA9 (Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie), Adam Sutherland (Peatbog Faeries), Kevin Henderson (Fiddlers Bid), Gordon Gunn(a host of bands!),David 'Mattie Foulds (karine Polwart ), Marc Clement (Blazin Fiddles), Brian MacAlpine (too many to mention!) are performing at a host of festivals throughout Europe and further afield in 2010, but until now were not performing in Scotland.


Tunng are an amazing experimental folk band from London and we are tickled pink they are coming!.

"Eclectic reinvention for electronically enhanced, East London folksters...It's eccentric, then, but charmingly so". Mojo Magazine, April 2010. ...

And Then We Saw Land is their latest album released this year to great reviews.


The Chair are an eight strong line-up mixing Orcadian, Scottish, Irish and European tunes. They have a dynamic rhythm section, drawing from diverse styles from rock to salsa and jazz. They were 2008 TRAD awards best folk band and they sold out at this year's Celtic Connections. They'll get Big Tent thumping!
