Pat Kane is the latest high profile figure to come to Kirkcaldy to talk about independence.

And the public discussion on the Scottish referendum organised by Yes Kirkcaldy is to be filmed by Al Jazeera, the Arabic TV channel.

The event, the latest in a series of conversations about what independence could mean for Scotland, is being held in St Bryce Kirk, Kirkcaldy on Wednesday, May 28 and will feature the Hue and Cry frontman and writer, plus Ivan McKee, director of Business for Scotland.

Marie Penman, organiser, was also contacted recently by Al Jazeera to record it for broadcast on their English-language news channel.

She said: “They are in Scotland, reporting on the build-up to the referendum, and were keen to attend a live discussion on the topic. They thought of Kirkcaldy, because it’s Gordon Brown’s constituency, and were delighted to learn that our Yes event is being held in the church where Mr Brown’s father was once minister!”

The event begins at 7.00 p.m, and is free.
