To be announced.

The Empire Café, the brainchild of leading Scottish author Louise Welsh and architect Jude Barber, will open for seven days to coincide with Glasgow's hosting of the Commonwealth Games, once known as the British Empire Games.

The café, based in the Briggait in Glasgow's Merchant City, will host debates, literary readings, films, art installations and discussions on the theme of Scotland and slavery, and even have food based on products connected to the slave trade, such as Jamaican ginger cake.

Events will run from July 24 to August 1.
