Here's what you can get up to in Scotland this week...

1 GLASGOW Women's Library is playing host to an exhibition about the Dundee Women’s Centre – Where The World Meets As Neighbours.

2 JAMES McAvoy will star in a new production of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano De Bergerac at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal. There are a few tickets left (seats in the gods, but at this stage, beggars can’t be choosers). Cyrano De Bergerac sees Jamie Lloyd and McAvoy continue their long-standing collaboration following The Ruling Class and Macbeth. This promises to be a belter. Shows are on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19. Tickets available from the venue.

4 ALSO in Auld Reekie, the incredible immersive Van Gogh Alive experience hits Festival Square. Art fans prepare to transcend time and space as you accompany Van Gogh on a journey through the Netherlands, Arles, Saint Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise and Paris, where he created many of his timeless masterpieces. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3000 inspirational images transforms every surface that surrounds you in what has been described as an “unforgettable multi-sensory experience”.

5 THE really bloody funny Sarah Millican is opening in Aberdeen this week with her new show Bobby Dazzler. It promises to do what it says on the tin, you’ll have a dazzler of a night out, and laugh until it hurts. The tickets are only £30 – total bargain. She’s on at Aberdeen Music Hall all next weekend.

6 THE world premiere of Wake Up Punk is on as part of the Glasgow Film Festival. Has the legacy of punk been distorted and commodified beyond all recognition? Joe Corre most definitely thinks so. In 2016 the son of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood burnt millions of pounds worth of punk-era memorabilia in protest. Nigel Askew’s freewheeling documentary recalls the energy and anarchy of the punk era and gives a voice to Corre’s fear that “punk has become part of business as usual”, but It also finds hope that the punk spirit survives in the guise of current protest movements. For tickets and more info head over to ... it's on at 1:30pm.

7 I’VE saved the best until last Stiff Little Fingers are hitting Troon town hall as part of the South Beach Sessions. Some truly brilliant gigs are lined up and this weekend it is the Northern Irish punk outfit from the 1970s. It may not be alternative Ulster, but this sure as hell is alternative Troon. Tickets are £15 and available from
