Activist Tommy Sheridan will talk about the future of Scotland at a Falkirk pub next week.

The former politician, a staunch supporter of independence, will discuss the impact the Referendum had on the country at North Star on Vicar Street on Friday, February 27.

Tommy hosted a similar event in the bar last year which was a sell out, so early arrival is recommended and the evening will also include live music from Ross Fairweather and Toni Etherson as well as a DJ set from Craig Burke. Organiser Marc Strathie goes to university with Tommy and set up the event in his local pub. Marc, a history and politics student at Strathclyde University from Falkirk said: “The night is not just about politics, it is also a celebration of Scotland’s talent.

“Toni has really shot to fame recently after her slots on STV so I am really glad she has agreed to play at North Star.

“I would like to stress that the night is not party political, this night is simply a Hope Over Fear night in aid of Falkirk Foodbanks.”

North Star owner Colin Green said: “Tommy is a charismatic man and a great speaker. I think, regardless of how you voted in the Referendum, no one could fail to be impressed with his passion for Scotland and politics.”

The event starts at 7 p.m. and tickets, priced £5, will be available on the door with all proceeds going to Falkirk Foodbank.
