Cash and a trophy beckon for Falkirk songwriters
It's billed as a main highlight of the Falkirk Folk Club calendar, and - just like the X-Factor - there's even a prize for the audience choice.
The 13th Falkirk Folk Club Annual Songwriting Competition returns to the St Francis Xavier Hall on Saturday (October 14) at 7pm, when a host of talented writers will compete for the coveted trophy.
Whether you go along to take part or just to listen you’re promised a great night out.
First prize is £100, with £50 for the runner-up and £30 for third prize - plus an extra prize for the “public vote”.
There’s also the winner’s trophy to aim for.
