Here are some entertaining events you may want to attend over the next few days.

1) DIONNE HICKEY

Talented singer and professional Christmas Lights switch flicker Dionne Hickey will perform at Stenhousemuir’s Stables on Saturday from 9pm. A chance to see and hear the amazing vocalist in intimate – and warm – surroundings after last weekend’s big festive date.

2) EIGHTIES MANIA at FTH

People who remember Kevin Bacon before his work in commercials will love this official 1980s tribute, featuring cracking recreations of chart toppers from Culture Club to Kim Wilde, pictured above. It’s going to be a footloose Saturday night at FTH from 7.30pm.

3) MUGENKYO TAIKO DRUMMERS

The hard to beat Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers are sure to be a big hit when they roll into Falkirk Town Hall at 7.30pm on Sunday. Imagine Keith Moon, John Bonham and Cozy Powell starring in Enter the Dragon and you still won’t come close to the show’s pure power and rhythm.

4) THE MEDIA WHORES

Falkirk’s rockers with their finger on society’s weak, but still ticking, pulse The Media Whores will blow the roof off Bannermans in Edinburgh from 7pm on Sunday in support of former Specials guitar man Roddy Radiation’s Skabilly Rebels. Tickets available at Ticket Scotland.

5) MOTHER GOOSE
