Our top six events and listings of what’s happening over the next seven days.

1 It’s a day of fun for everyone as Grangemouth holds its annual Children’s Day on Saturday. Things get started at around 1.30pm when the procession winds it’s way along Kingseat Avenue to Zetland Park for the crowning of Queen Kara Wilson.

2 Tomorrow (Friday) night sees scores of families and friends touring around the streets of Grangemouth to see the colourful and creative arch displays Children’s Day Queen Kara Wilson and her Beancross Primary School pals have come up with. A great night for all.

3 Classic children’s tale The Very Hungry Caterpillar will be performed at Falkirk Town Hall, West Bridge Street, Falkirk tomorrow (Friday) at 1.30pm and 4.30pm. Performers will used a fuzzy army of pretty cute puppets to bring the story of the butterfly-in-waiting to life.

4 Grapple fans will head for Grangemouth Town Hall to see W3L wrestlers like Mike Musso, pictured above, in action on Saturday afternoon. There will also be the odd baddie, like the creepy but “very good” Euan G Mackie, to bombard with boos as well. Doors open at 2.30pm.

5 The Sing Forth Choir will be raising the roof at Falkirk Town Hall, in West Bridge Street, on Saturday from 7.30pm. This most harmonious of events, led by musical director Dougie Flower, will include special guests and songs from the world of pop, rock and musicals.

6 Ska-tatistic Scottish band Bombskare, pictured above, will send off Edinburgh’s ill-fated Calton Road venue Studio 24, due to close for good at the end of the month, in fine style on Sunday from 7.30pm. Expect sweat and sharp stabbing beats.
