Our guide to what’s happening on the social scene over the next week.

Top six

1. Friday night and Saturday morning will be an energetic time for the Warehouse faithful who turn out to see hometown heroes Rebelion return to these shores with the unrelenting dance grooves they honed right here in Bairnburgh. The beat begins at 10pm.

2. It’s only natural to pay tribute to David Jones, aka Major Tom, aka the Thin White Duke, aka Ziggy Stardust, aka David Bowie. While the mystical musician may have dematerialised from this mortal coil his hits live on in shows like this one from 7.30pm at Falkirk Town Hall on Friday.

3. If you think it’s easy being a copper then check out the gritty play Stand By at Falkirk Town Hall tonight (Thursday) from 7.30pm. Written by former policeman Adam McNamara, pictured above, it’s harder hitting than even ITV plod-a-rama The Bill at its early 1990s peak.

4. Plenty of top flight grapple action is on the cards at Linlithgow Leisure Centre on Saturday from 6.30pm as the stars of the World Wide Wrestling League entertain the crowds. Expect atomic piledrivers, suplexes, buckets of sweat and big men in lycra.

5. Part of Bo’ness Hippodrome’s Taste of Silents mini-festival, Metropolis, screening on Saturday from 7.30pm, is Fritz Lang’s 1927 dystopian future epic about folk in power trying to keep that power at the expense of the poor working class of course. It also features a cool robot chick.

6. Legend has it the great Orson Welles, pictured above, was only 12 years old when he created his masterpiece Citizen Kane, but that might be an outright lie. Whatever age he was, he was still pretty young to make the film you can see at the Hippodrome from 7.30pm on Sunday.
