VENUE : Edinburgh International Book Festival: Peppers Theatre

FESTIVAL: Edinburgh International Book Festival

CATEGORY: Literature & Storytelling

ART AND PASSION IN THE RENAISSANCE Insightful and controversial in equal measure, respected art critic Jonathan Jones joins us to present The Loves of the Artists. Jones takes a fresh look at nude paintings by men like Michelangelo, Raphael and Rembrandt, and concludes that to appreciate the art of the Renaissance, we have to know about the sex lives of the men and women who defined it.

Venue Details
The Edinburgh International Book Festival takes place in Charlotte Square Gardens (at the west end of George Street, a minute’s walk from Princes Street), which is transformed into a tented village for the duration of the Book Festival. All Book Festival events take place in a variety of venues within the Gardens – each a unique temporary structure built especially for the occasion including: Baillie Gifford Main Theatre (570 seats), ScottishPower Studio Theatre (320 seats), Guardian Spiegeltent (180 seats), Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre (175 seats), Peppers Theatre (190 seats), Writers’ Retreat (70 seats), Baillie Gifford Imagination Lab (75 seats), Baillie Gifford Story Box (20–48 seats). Entry to the Gardens is FREE and EVERYONE is welcome! It is a wonderful green space in which to sit, talk, think, play and be entertained. There is much to enjoy during a visit to the Book Festival, it's not only about the events. You can see a favourite author, join in a workshop or debate, enjoy a cuppa in the café, a beer or a wee dram in the Guardian Spiegeltent, browse the two bookshops, or simply park yourself on the grass (with or without a book) and soak up the atmosphere.

• Fully wheelchair accessible site and free wheelchair hire. Please pull in at the west end of George Street to drop off wheelchair users.
