    Stirling Winter Festival 2019

    Central FM and Stirling Council are pleased to announce an outstanding programme of events for the whole family to enjoy, which have been laid on as part of Stirling Winter Festival 2019. There really is no better place to enjoy this special time of year!

    Ardal O’Hanlon: The showing off must go on – Thursday 14th November

    ARDAL O’HANLON, STAR OF DEATH IN PARADISE ,FATHER TED, AND MY HERO (BBC), CONTINUES TO TOUR HIS ACCLAIMED STAND-UP SHOWS WORLDWIDE. BECAUSE HE LOVES IT. AND IT’S A COMPULSION. AND THE WORLD IS A FUNNY PLACE

    In an age of raging populism, MeToo, identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, peak avocado and £15 Gin and Tonics, and terrified of being on the wrong side of history, and desperate to prove that his gender, race, age and class don’t necessarily define him, Ardal is forced to saddle his high horse again and ride fearlessly into the culture wars (with a white hankie in his pocket just in case), comedy as ever being the best emergency response mechanism to extreme events there is.
