Richard Jobson and Martin Metcalfe, Scalarama and Kinky Boots

Richard Jobson and Martin Metcalfe on ‘The Speed of Life', Scalarama, and Callum Francis from Kinky Boots.

Grant Stott has live music and conversation with Author, and frontman of Skids, Richard Jobson and Filthy Tongues Frontman, Martin Metcalfe – both will be on hand discuss their joint tour in support of Richard’s book The Speed of Life - part pop culture sci-fi thriller, part love letter to David Bowie!

Matt Monro Jr previews his upcoming tour, and Afternoon Show regular Film Critic, Eddie Harrison will discuss the theatrical release of Lucky - a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

Director & Actor, Alasdair McCrone will be talking about Two - Mull Theatre’s revival of Jim Cartwright’s beautiful, poignant and very funny two-hander - it’s going on tour in Argyll, the Highlands and Islands and in Dumfries and Galloway in autumn 2018.

Grant will also hear about Scalarama - a nation-wide celebration of alternative cinema that takes place every year across the month of September: Scotland has more than 60 screenings of indie and cult film this year, including rarely seen gems like Joe Dante's The Movie Orgy!

All that and Kinky Boots(!) which is strutting into The Edinburgh Playhouse in December. Inspired by true events, this story of Brit grit to high-heeled hit is a dazzling show - and the star of the show, Callum Francis who plays Lola, will be discussing it all.

Don't Miss It!
