Looking for something to do this Saturday? Here at STV Glasgow we have have listed five things taking place in the city.

A new exhibition displaying pictures of stars as they visited Glasgow is on show at the Royal Concert Hall. The City of Stars, curated by journalist Alison Kerr, features photographs of the greatest stars from the movie and music world as they passed through Glasgow from the 1920s onwards to meet their fans. A number of these photographs, which come from The Herald and Times archive, have never been seen before - and many more have not been seen since they were originally published. The oldest picture is of Houdini taken in 1920 and the most recent is of Frank Sinatra’s already legendary 1990 visit to Ibrox. All of the photos are accompanied by stories about what the stars did while they were in Glasgow. The City of Stars Exhibition is situated in the café bar area of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. It begins today and runs until September. For more information visit the Glasgow’s Concert Halls website.

Fancy a day out in the fresh air? Why not join the people of South Seeds and help them build a community garden. It will be an afternoon of digging, wheel barrowing and raking at Agnew Lane in Govanhill from 2-4pm. All participants will be entered into a free raffle for an Eco Kettle and compost bin. Hot drinks and snacks will be available throughout the afternoon for helpers. For more information visit the South Seeds website.
