Here is what’s on in the area in the coming week and beyond

1) Craig Hill at FTH

The follicly challenged comedian in a kilt is back at Falkirk Town Hall with all new observations on this wild ride we call life. Craig Hill’s non-stop barrage of banter will have punters holding their sides and wiping away tears of pure comedic joy from 7.30pm on Saturday.

2) Best of Broadway at FTH

Fans of musicals will flock to this show featuring some of Broadway’s greatest hits at Falkirk Town Hall tonight (Thursday). All the best songs from shows like Les Miserables, Wicked and Cats, pictured above, will be performed with passion and pizzazz from 7.30pm.

3) Sing Forth at FTH

The Sing Forth Choir will raise the roof at Falkirk Town Hall from 7.30pm on Sunday. The 60-strong singing group will perform blooming marvelous vocal arrangements of golden oldies, Scottish classics and current hits under the guidance of musical director Dougie Flower.

4) Portonians: Mother Goose

The Young Portonian pantomime is always a highlight of the Grangemouth social calendar. This year’s production Mother Goose will once again have audience members young and old laughing and singing along in Grangemouth Town Hall from 7.30pm on Wednesday.

5) Jimi Hendrix Tribute

A purple haze will descend on Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms, in West Register Street, from 8.30pm on Saturday as the Jimi Hendrix Re‑Experience pay tribute to the guitar legend, pictured above, and his far out – and far-reaching – musical legacy.

6) The Chuckle Brothers

This might seem an unlikely alliance, but it appears to be absolutely true – Barry and Paul Chuckle are performing at Falkirk’s hip-hop happening club The Warehouse on Saturday from 10pm. Fans will be able to meet and greet the two loo brush-headed CBeebies legends.
