Opening with the familiar, luminous blue legend – “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...” – but not the scene-setting title crawl reserved for official episodes of the Star Wars saga, Rogue One is a rollicking, action-packed romp that dovetails neatly into the sprawling, otherworldly opus writ large by George Lucas.
If rollicking and raucous Christmas shows are not quite right for your little ones, there's a delightful and enchanting alternative being staged at Aberdeen's Lemon Tree.

But this year, the Attic Theatre company are behind the magic.
It's eight years since I swapped Aberdeen for a life in the Highlands but I still visit the Granite City regularly. Each time I return I'm struck by how the city continues to evolve and grow, and that extends to areas outwith the city centre, such as Dyce.
