An Aberdeen musical legend is to make an appearance at a world-renowned talk series in Glasgow later this year.
Aberdeen-born Annie Lennox is one of 16 guests named in the full line-up for the TEDxGlasgow event being held at the city’s SEC Armadillo on June 14.
The internationally acclaimed singer is to discuss global feminism and will be joined by a number of other inspirational speakers at the event – who will all be giving talks relating to and linked by the theme of “connection”.
Among those due to speak at the series are Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, who will be focusing on human rights and social justice, and former Skyscanner CEO Mark Logan, who will be discussing women in technology.
