Our top six events happening over the next week.

1 Top vocalist Barbara Bryceland, pictured above, has rounded up a posse of pals, including the Soul Nation Choir, NRG Performers and Johnny Lee Memphis, to entertain the masses with a special summer show at Falkirk Town Hall tonight (Thursday) at 7.30pm.

2 Direct from London’s West End comes the vocal powerhouse that is The Opera Boys. Using the experience they have gained from their time as leading men, each member of the group has the skills to top the bills as the audience will see from 7.30pm tomorrow (Friday) at Falkirk Town Hall.

3 The Broadway School of Performing Arts, pictured above, tap into Walt Disney’s eternal well of wonder to present Mickey’s Magical Adventure at Falkirk Town Hall on Sunday and Monday at 7pm. There will be performances of songs from a myriad of Disney classics.

4 Artisan Tap, in Wooer Street, Falkirk will play host to a plethora of prose pros from 7.30pm on Wednesday, June 7. Writers reading their works at the free event, organised by author Andrew McCallum Crawford, include Janet Paisley, Carol McKay and Karen Jones.

5 Ireland’s youthful rock ‘n’ rollers The Strypes manage to have one pointy boot in the past and one in the present paying tribute to The Yardbirds and Doctor Feelgood while still sounding hip. They play The Caves, Niddry Street, Edinburgh tonight (Thursday) from 7pm.

6 While the mothership that is The Happy Mondays may not be landing in the town, their faithful envoy/companion/crazy dancer/mascot Bez will be beaming down to Falkirk and hitting the decks at The Warehouse in Burnbank Road from 10pm on Saturday to early hours Sunday.
