Dallahan (music) Wed 21st Nov, 7.30 pm

Wednesday, November 21, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

In 2015, the band was nominated for ‘Folk Band of The Year’ and their debut album shortlisted for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards.

December 2018

Nae Pasaran (film) Sat 1st Dec, 7.30pm

Saturday, December 1, 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

This award winning documentary explores the heroic stand of a few brave Scottish workers. 1974, Bob Fulton, a Rolls-Royce engine inspector, returns to his section, upset and anxious. He’s just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet engine has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he’s refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet. He’s seen the images of people packed into football stadiums and the Chilean Air Force jets bombing Santiago, and now one of the engines from those very same planes is right there, waiting for inspection. Chilean documentary maker Felipe Bustos Sierra shows the impact of Fulton’s decision to keep the engines in Scotland.

“… emphasises the fundamental decency of the men who took a stand.” The Scotsman

£5 pay on the door

Simon Evans: Genius (Comedy) Tue 26th Mar 2019, 8pm

Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm… Age guidance 14+ (swearing and adult content)

In addition he does live stand up shows all over the UK, and appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies As yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1).  The show is suitable for ages 14+ (language)
