Our Top Six

1. Fife’s finest female folk singer Barbara Dickson takes to the Falkirk Town Hall stage on Sunday at 7.30pm with musical collaborator Nick Holland on keyboards. Anyone shouting out for I Know Him So Well will get their lugs skelpt – but Babs might decide to do it at some point in the show.

2. The Funbox gang are back and this time they’re taking their particular brand of children’s entertainment under the ocean for an Underwater Adventure at Falkirk Town Hall on Saturday at 1pm and 3.30pm. Sing alongs and silly jokes abound.

3. Leaves are throwing themselves off trees with regular reckless abandon so it’s time for Falkirk Tryst Orchestra’s autumn concert at Falkirk Town Hall. Michael Graham leads the musicians through some top tunes from Strauss, Bernstein and more from 7.30pm on Friday.

4. Dundee’s finest musical export since Oor Wullie formed a jug band with Soapy Soutar and Wee Eck, indie rockers The View return to Falkirk to play The Warehouse on Friday from 7pm. The lads played a memorable pre-T-in-the-Park gig at the venue in 2007 when it was the Martell.

5. Falkirk Folk Club has come up trumps again to secure the musical services of Jefferson Hamer. The Murphy Beds guitar man is also an entertaining solo turn as punters will see and hear for themselves at the Tolbooth Tavern, Tolbooth Street, tonight (Thursday) from 8pm.

6. Footballing legend, author, recording artist and would-be hostage negotiator Paul Gascoigne is back in Glasgow, where at least half the city still appreciate him. The enigmatic Geordie is live and unleashed at the Pavilion Theatre tonight (Thursday) from 6pm.
