The Patryns play Grangemouth town Hall on Saturday

Here’s our top six of what’s happening and a full listings guide for over the next seven days.

1 Grangemouth Town Hall plays host to talented young musicians on their latest stop on the Hit the Road tour on Saturday night. Featuring sweat soaked sets from local headliners The Patryns, Moscow and Sway. Things get loud from 7pm.

2 The Walled Garden in Dollar Park will host a day of events organised by local charity the Cyrenians from 10am to 4pm on Saturday. There will be live bands on the bandstand, old-fashioned games for children, old photographs of the park and refreshments.

3 Falkirk Town Hall will host CBeebies stars Sarah and Duck on stage in a show that will delight smaller, younger people. Two shows will take place at FTH on Sunday at 1.30pm and 4pm. The Scarf Lady, although not exactly dressed for the weather, will also make an appearance.

4 The Warehouse is no stranger to the Sex Pistols, having hosted former frontman John Lydon, pictured below with his Pistol pals, and Public Image Ltd last summer. Now the Burnbank Road venue features top tribute act the Sex Pistols Experience on Friday from 7pm.

5 Dig out your baggiest t-shirts and jeans and your floppiest hat for Brownie, The Squire, Mani and Reni – aka The Stone Roses – and head to Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday from 5pm for a waterfall-like cascade of classic tunes. Support from a wee band called Primal Scream.

6 You may have to travel the long windy roads to Callander’s Riverside Inn for 9pm tonight (Thursday) but it will be worth it to see Scottish blues rock guitarist Lewis Hamilton, whose fingers fly on the fretboard even faster than his namesake drives a car around Brands Hatch.
