Here are six of the best events coming to a venue near you in the next week.
1) I’m ‘No a Billy He’s a Tim

2) Horrible Histories
The past was a terrible (and terribly funny) time – it really was – and Horrible Histories: Best of Barmy Britain aims to show youngsters the best of the worst bits from hysterical, sorry, historical Britain at Falkirk Town Hall, West Bridge Street, Falkirk on Sunday at 2pm and 5pm.
