The Bobby Deans Big band is back again to fill the 2pm slot tomorrow afternoon. The Big Band Sessions have been very popular and no wonder. The level of the bands has been outstanding every week. If you used to go to Carnegies way back, this is for you. It’ll bring back memories of the music and starting your Saturdays early.

The video show is full of the best music of the 80’s and gives you an immersive journey into your very own musical past. (if you are of a certain age). The large screen multi-projection and laser light show starts with a look back at TV shows and ads from the era and is absolute fun to watch. Expect music from Aha, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, ABC, Wham, Human League, Erasure, Simple Minds, Duran Duran and much more. Doors are 7pm and it is £5 entry, tickets on the door and available via Skiddle.

The Open Stage Session on Sunday will be another jam packed afternoon with talent from all over the West of Scotland. Colin Bell, Katie Bee, Phil McHugh, Craig Paterson, Shelagh McKay Jones, Zoe Eliza Hodkinson and more still to be announced are all lined up and ready to go. Entry is free and starts at 3pm.

On Thursday there is a change to the usual programme as the first of Renfrewshire Leisure’s promotion in the shape of Arabella Weir plays The Bungalow for the first time. Arabella is a Scottish comedian, actress and writer. She has played roles in the comedy series The Fast Show and Posh Nosh, and has written several books, including Does My Bum Look Big in This? She has also written for The Independent and The Guardian and the latter’s Weekend magazine. It is a sell out and unfortunately there are no tickets left unless you keep your eyes peeled.
