AUDIENCES can go back to the 1980s, enjoy lunchtime classical music and see a West End play filmed live from London as part of The Brunton’s programme of entertainment this week.

The Musselburgh-based theatre’s activities are currently taking place at other venues due to the temporary closure of parts of The Brunton in Ladywell Way after a survey detected “structural issues” in the theatre’s roof.

The events are being staged at Loretto School Theatre and Northesk Parish Church, both near The Brunton, and also at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh.

The Bistro, which is open at The Brunton, is not impacted by the building issues affecting the performance spaces and is open for business as usual.

There is the chance to see David Tennant in National Theatre Live’s Good today (Friday) at 7pm at Loretto School Theatre in Millhill.

Tennant plays an ordinary man who is swept into the Nazi regime at the time of the Second World War.

The West End play will be screened live from the Harold Pinter Theatre in London.

The Lark Piano Trio will stage a bite-sized concert at lunchtime on Tuesday at 1pm in Northesk Parish Church.

An optional light lunch of soup and a sandwich is served in the church hall adjacent to the church at noon, prior to the performance.

The trio’s set includes Schumann: Piano Trio No 2 in G minor; Haydn: Piano Trio No 44 in E major; and Piazzolla: ‘Summer’ from Four Seasons.

Meanwhile, the audience can take a step back in time to enjoy ’80s Mania at the Assembly Rooms next Thursday (May 11) at 7.30pm.

Europe’s official 1980s multi-tribute concert features 28 pop icons authentically recreated with live band and dancers. They will perform more than 35 chart-topping smash-hits live in concert, with tributes to Duran Duran, The Human League, Kim Wilde, Culture Club, Madonna, Wham!, Nena, Toni Basil, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Bananarama, Dead or Alive and Madness.
