  • Museum of the Moon @St Giles’ Cathedral: Disarming Reverberations, a live performance from Martin Green (Lau), bringing together the heart-breaking sounds of the Dublin cappella quartet Landless with the rich sound of Alba Brass and electronic manipulation to create a sonic world that is both contemporary and at home in the historic building.

  • Gilded Balloon Scottish comedy: Glasgow’s Gary Meikle is joined by Jay Lafferty, Rosco McClelland, Billy Kirkland and Susan Riddle and other surprises on the night.
