The Top Six

1. Falkirk will be hosting its very own Musicians Against Homelessness gig at Behind the Wall from 7.30pm on Saturday with the star turn Edinburgh rockers Logan’s Close joining The Sonic Blues, Sam Main, Dusty Hayes and SHIVA for great night.

2. Women of a certain age will be sprinting to Falkirk Town Hall on Sunday to see Bay City Rollers’ frontman Les McKeown. The Scottish pop star, a 1970s heartthrob on a par with the three Daves – David Soul, David Cassidy and David Essex – struts his stuff from 7.30pm.

3. Some plays are pure murder to sit through, but the only thing murderous about Murder, Just What the Doctor Ordered at Falkirk Town Hall from 7.30pm tonight (Thursday) is good old Burke and Hare – the enterprising grave robbers hired by the studious Doctor Robert Knox.

4. Leading Scottish touring theatre company Rapture, pictured above, are bringing Tennessee Williams’ seedy masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire to life at Falkirk Town Hall on Wednesday from 7.30pm. Just try and get the name Stella out of your head afterwards.

5. It’s that time of year again when we find out exactly what the Romans did for us lot in the Falkirk area. This year’s festival promises to be the biggest and best yet and kicks off with Roman Lego Mega Build in Falkirk Library, Hope Street, on Saturday at 11am.

6. The best Swedish export since Ikea’s delicious meatballs, Basshunter is bringing his massive hits Now You’re Gone and All I Ever Wanted to Falkirk’s Warehouse on Friday night. Take full advantage of this rare visit from the Scandinavian raver and get dancing from 10pm.
