A NEW joint project between Edinburgh and Glasgow will unite the two cities in a month-long celebration of lyrics.

Well-known writers and musicians from both cities will perform and discuss their favourite song lyrics as part of Let's Get Lyrical.

A programme of more than 50 events throughout February will include those celebrating wartime songs, songs linked to gardening and even a night inspired by the music of William Shatner.

Venues in Edinburgh include the Royal Botanic Garden and Usher Hall.
