THE Brunton’s Big Fab Comedy Show is coming to the Corn Exchange in Haddington next Saturday (November 11).

The Corn Exchange is one of the venues being used to host Brunton shows after the Musselburgh theatre building was closed earlier this year following a roof survey.

A night of live stand-up comedy, starring well-known TV names alongside some up-and-coming talent from across Scotland and the UK, is on offer at the Big Fab Comedy Show, presented by Scotland’s “original home of live comedy”, Gilded Balloon.

BBC Scotland’s Breaking The News star Jay Lafferty will host the show alongside Sarah Keyworth (Live at the Apollo), Joshua Bethania (So You Think You’re Funny winner 2022), Shetland favourite Marjolein Robertson and Susie McCabe.

Musselburgh’s Northesk Parish Church is also proving a popular venue for classical music.

On Tuesday, The Brunton’s Bite-sized Concerts at Lunchtime Series will welcome pianist Anna Michels, who has performed major piano concertos with numerous Scottish and Dutch orchestras. She will perform Schumann’s Faschingsschwank aus Wien – a description of an Austrian carnival – and also Rachmaninov’s Preludes.

For a relaxing lunchtime, audience members are invited to enjoy optional soup and a sandwich in the church hall at noon, followed by an hour-long concert in the church at 1pm.
