Entertainment for the first night of SNP Conference this summer (open to non-delegates and non-members too, though!)
Novelist, playwright, performer and Falkirk boy Alan Bissett performs a series of Scotland-themed works. Alan was heavily involved in the cultural campaign in 2014 and has addressed the topic of Scotland from numerous angles in his plays, poems and novels, using stories and satire to explore Scotland's contradictions and eccentricities.
Alan has been the recipient of a Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Best Writer award, a Fringe First for his 'one-woman show' The Moira Monologues, and numerous awards at International Film Festivals for the short film which he wrote and narrated, 'The Shutdown', about an industrial accident in Grangemouth Oil Refinery.
His work has been reviewed negatively by Euan McColm, Chris Deerin, David Torrance, The Telegraph and the 'anti-establishment' composer Sir James Macmillan, Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
