Our guide to what’s on over the next seven days locally and beyond

1. Country music fans will mosey on down to Falkirk Town Hall, in West Bridge Street, at 7.30pm on Saturday to see four of Ireland’s finest performers – John Hogan, Gary Gamble, Cowboy Larry and Joe Moore, pictured above, perform with the cracking Keltic Storm band.

2. The heartwarming musical tale of orphan Annie and her dreams to find a family will unfold at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Featuring Polmont’s Hazel Beattie as Miss Hannigan, pictured above, Annie runs at the Gilded Balloon, Rose Street, from 2pm today and through to August 14.

3. Those keepers of creepy crawlies and other interesting animals, Zoolab, will be visiting Denny Library, in Davies Row, on Tuesday, August 8 from 11am. Tickets for this up close and personal with nature event will be going faster than a polecat down a pipe. Call (01324) 504242 for more.

4. Suggs and the nutty boys bring their classic catchy ska pop to Falkirk Stadium tomorrow (Friday) from 7.30pm. Expect all the hits – Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love, My Girl, One Step Beyond, Our House, Wings of a Dove, some new numbers and lots more.

5. Popstar Jess Glynne will be belting out her hits, including Take Me Home and Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself, at Falkirk Stadium on Saturday night. Jess will be supported by fast rising acts Mullally and Kiko Bun when the fun starts at 6pm.

6. Before Sir Ed of Sheeran arrived on the scene, KT Tunstall was the undisputed master of the loop pedal. Unlike the ginger troubadour though, she has gone on to embrace the band format and you can see her strut her stuff from 6.30pm at Kelvingrove Bandstand in Glasgow on Friday.
