COMEDY: BILL BAILEY - LIMBOLAND

Beloved TV star of Black Books and Never Mind the Buzzcocks Bill Bailey brings another hilarious and musical live comedy show to Aberdeen tonight.

As well as witty insights and clever jokes, you can look forward to some original comedy songs from this multi-talented performer.

EXHIBITION: STEVEN PEEBLES - AUTUMN REAPPEARANCE

Swing by Tin Roof Studios in Dundee tonight to see the first solo show of local artist Steven Peebles. Autumn Reappearance features a mixture of sculpture and print work with a focus on incorporating a variety of textures. Such promising homegrown talent will surely go far, so see Peebles’ debut while you ca.

FILM: LAUREL & HARDY DOUBLE BILL

Classic comedy double act Laurel and Hardy return to the big screen at Perth Playhouse tonight for a rare back to back screening. The pair’s 1932 short Towed in a Hole will be followed by the longer Way Out West from 1937.
