One-to-watch Sanders got rave reviews for her 2011 Edinburgh show. She returns to the festival this year with a new hour called And Now For A Nice Evening With Wallan - in which the audience are invited to "imagine your favourite thing and replace it with this show - great highs, no real lows and it all begins with a really nice walk."
Pitch your Edinburgh show in 25 words or less.
Hang on a minute, shouldn’t you be doing that? I’ve written it - I can’t do everything. I’m hoping that it just sells itself, really.
Your best Edinburgh moment?
I found this bag of quinoa in the reduced aisle once - and the best thing was, it wasn’t even going out of date.
And your worst?
I spilt the quinoa before I got home.
You've got one hour free in Edinburgh - what do you do?
I hate to be a stickler and traditional and what have you BUT OF COURSE I go and see a show. I’m not an animal!
Which Edinburgh landmark/venue/place would you give a five star review to?
I really like Napiers the chemist.
Give us a secret Edinburgh tip!
Say yes, you would like a carrier bag in retail outlets - hold on to that bag (ideally two bags) and you can use them to waterproof things: bike saddles, shoes, heads etc.
Deep-fried haggis or deep-fried Mars bar?
Mars bar - I’m not an animal.
Kilt or trousers?
It’s probably raining so trousers (just thinking of you and your legs).
Arthur's Seat or Arthur Smith?
I’ve not sat on either so will let you know if/when I do.

...be being totally spiritual 24/7 again.”
