MacFloyd will be playing Falkirk Town Hall on Friday

Our guide to what’s on over the next seven days in the district and beyond with MacFloyd one of the highlights at Falkirk Town Hall tomorrow (Friday).

1. Fans of Pink Floyd and their progressive melodic meanderings don’t have to wish they were there at one of their gigs anymore – they can just head along to Falkirk Town Hall tomorrow (Friday) from 7.30pm to see tribute act MacFloyd play classics from the Animals album.

2. The fairytale about the blonde porridge pilferer is brought to life with a ton of music at Falkirk Town Hall from 1pm on Sunday. It’s fun to sneak into a bears’ home and mess with their stuff, but in reality Goldilocks would be looking at a 12-month supervised community payback order.

3. Captivate Theatre Company’s production of Les Miserables, featuring former St Mungo’s High School pupil Kara Chalmers (picture above) as Fantine, will run at the Gilded Balloon in the Rose Theatre from Friday through to August 27. Visit www.captivatetheatre.com for more.

4. The music of the Everly Brothers, pictured above, features in a ’60s Night Out with The Dreamers and The Temple Brothers from 7.30pm at Falkirk Town Hall on Saturday. The Temple lads kick things off with some Don and Phil classics then join the Dreamers to take the night home.

5. The family friendly independent music festival returns for a seventh straight year with top turns like Songhoy Blues and BMX Bandits, pictured above, playing Cardross Estate near Stirling with a myriad of great bands you may not have heard of yet. Runs from Friday to Sunday.

6. Courtesy of new underground night organisers Amplify, superstar Irish DJ Brian Kearney will be importing his uplifting trance and psy-trance creations directly to The Warehouse massive tomorrow (Friday). The Burnbank Road venue’s dance floor will fill up from 11am.
