After a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh International Festival, Oliver Emanuel’s ‘Dragon’ makes its way north to the Dundee Rep theatre. Praised for its innovative stage design as much as it’s poignant story - this is a must-see piece of family theatre on these cold autumn nights.

COMEDY: KEVIN BRIDGES
When a modern comedy behemoth is in town, it’s hard to look at any other options. Continuing his sell-out tour, Clydebank’s own Kevin Bridges is playing a handful of dates at the Playhouse in Edinburgh. If you’re seeing the words ‘sell-out’ as a challenge more than a definitive statement - then keep your eyes peeled to Twitter for possible late news of extra tickets.

EXHIBITION: ART OF BILLY CONNOLLY
From one Glasgow funny-man to another. Maybe best known for his side-splitting routines about the one slipper for the whole family - Billy Connolly is also an accomplished artist who uses drawing as a way to relax. If you’re looking to delve into the mind of a true national treasure, then this is a good place to start.
