YolanDa Brown

Check out our weekly guide to what’s happening over the next seven days.

Here’s our top six events:

1. Jazz superstar saxophonist YolanDa Brown will be getting down at Falkirk Town Hall on Monday, October 16, from 7.30pm. The ridiculously talented musician – a double MOBO award winner – and her band will be playing songs from recent her Love Politics War album.

2. The story of the rise of the late, great British comedy legend Norman Wisdom, pictured above, will be brought tripping, stumbling and bumbling to life by performer Jack Lane at Falkirk Town Hall on Wednesday, October 18 from 7.30pm. Tell Mr Grimsdale to bring sweets.

3. Dougie MacLean will be singing and strumming up a storm to stir up strong Scottish feelings at Falkirk Town Hall on Saturday from 7.30pm. Even if you’ve never tasted Irn Bru or digested a deep fried Mars Bar, hairs on your neck will still stand to attention when you hear him sing Caledonia.

4. World famous jazz musician and club owner Ronnie Scott would no doubt deeply dig the vibe being laid down at Falkirk Town Hall tomorrow (Friday) from 7.30pm. The full story of Ronnie’s renowned premises will be told through the medium of music and spoken word.

5. The apparently true – though nuttier than an abundantly packed Snickers bar – story of a German scientist’s attempts to introduce rocket powered mail delivery to the Western Isles in the 1920s comes singing and dancing to Falkirk Town Hall on Tuesday, October 17 at 6.30pm.

6. We all love country couples – from June and Johnny to Kenny and Dolly. Now, all the way from the blue ridge mountains of Motherwell, we have modern country music husband and wife Tim and Esther O’Connor, aka Ashton Lane, at Falkirk Trinity Church tomorrow (Friday) from 7.30pm.
