The Edinburgh Festival is coming to a close. But if you've been avoiding Edinburgh for the past three weeks, and fancy catching a show with particular LGBT interest, you .’ could do worse than Forbidden, a story of a wartime love affair between a Jewish woman and a German soldier's wife. It stars Clare Grogan and Cordelia Rayner.

I C Vent/c, Cllzl/lllhfls Shoot, Edi/ibiHo/i. uni/l St) Aug.

The bad news is The Tunnel Nightclub in Glasgow has cancelled its short-lived Cabaret Night on Sundays. The good news is it has re-branded it as a sparklingly new event called POP.

Gordon Roberts of Thom Leisure, the outfit behind the night, said, ‘We listened to what our customers want, and they told us they didn't like the name Cabaret, so we are changing it.’ They are also opening the doors earlier and reducing the entry price. So, as Gordon said, ‘Be there early on the re-launch night: we expect large crowds!‘ I See //Sl/llgf;, this page
