Edinburgh music scene social night Born To Be Wide has another in its popular series of seminars on Thursday 4 November at the Electric Circus. The cunningly-named Play Away event will welcome promoters and bookers from London, Manchester, Stornoway and Belfast to talk about the basics of their shows – how they select acts, what they pay, and how they promote visiting bands.

Taking part will be Greg McCann [Laverys, Belfast], Louis Barradas [Debt Records, Manchester], Matty [White Heat, London] and Charlie Clark [Jäger Room, Stornoway].
