Gordon Menzies and Robin Watson have performed as Gaberlunzie for more than 40 years and are well known for their distinctive take on traditional Scottish songs and contemporary music. They also boast a wealth of self-penned material infused with a healthy dose of Scottish humour.

Adult tickets are 12.00 or 10 for concessions/under-18s. To book call 01236 732887.

The following night, Saturday October 9, film and television actor John Cairney will visit the theatre with his one-man show, The Greasepaint Monkey. John will talk about his experiences in movie roles including the Harryhausen-tastic Jason and the Argonauts and Titanic flick A Night To Remember, as well as a string of West End shows and television parts.

John will regale the audience with a glittering array of true and almost-true stories about life in the world's second-oldest profession in this event which is part of Words 2010, North Lanarkshire Council's festival of books and writing.

This show starts 7:45pm and all tickets are 5. Call 01236 732887 to book.
