Festival succession row

Next year will be Sir Brian McMaster's last Festival as director, but critics are not intending to wave him off kindly into the sunset.

The director of the Edinburgh International Festival was forced to defend himself as his programme began yesterday after he was accused of running the event “like a Mickey- Mouse operation”.

Sir Brian McMaster, who will retire after putting on his fifteenth festival next year, has dismissed critics of his management as “opportunists” who want to succeed him.
