1 - It’s double dinosaur heaven in Glasgow as Trix comes to town hard on the heels of Dippy who has drawn the crowds at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

The Robotarium is being staged today and tomorrow at the National Museum of Scotland and there is also a robot exhibition at the museum until May 5, featuring more than 100 objects.

3 - A provocative exploration of how men speak about women in men-only spaces is being staged in Stirling, Dundee and Aberdeen this week.

Here he discovers all the things people have lost. The play, for ages nine and upward, was commissioned by Imaginate and supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.

The show will last approximately 25 minutes followed by up to 10 minutes of free play.

6 - Scots have migrated all over the world and have often had a profound impact on the areas where they settled. The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry has brought together stories from more than such communities, documenting their Scottish connections in more than 300 panels. A remarkable and heart-felt homage to the determination, of Scottish migrants and their descendants over centuries, it is on display at the New Lanark World Heritage site until April 28. The exhibition also features a variety of mixed media artwork.
