The List's top five alternative activities for the royal wedding day

Not got your invite to the Kate'n'Wills nuptials? Go to one of these instead

1 Off With Their Heads

Susan Morrison hosts an afternoon of music and comedy at The Stand, Glasgow, with proceeds going to liberal publication Scottish Left Review. As if the title wasn’t anti enough.

2 Heart Buchanan

The kindly folks at the Byres Road eatery have a special offer on their early evening menu, and will be dishing out ‘wedding favours’ as well. How mysteriously alluring.

3 Til Death Do Us Part(y)

A puntastic title for the warehouse party at SWG3, especially when you note that shouty-metallers Divorce will play a live set. What else would you expect from the Optimo boys?

4 Neu! Reekie! 4

Edinburgh’s one of the few locales in Scotland said to be going all out for the wedding, so it’s unsurprising that the N!R! wordsmiths will be counteracting this with their own, more radically-aligned form of performance poetry.

5 A Right Royal Pop-Up

Kirsty Thomas has followed the Fence Records tradition of assuming an alias (Lovely Pigeon) as she presents her ‘Beards and Tiaras’ print exhibition alongside selling merch at Home Game in Anstruther.

Royal Wedding Celebration

A special offer on Heart Buchanan's Early Evening Menu, plus 'wedding favours', to mark Will & Kate's happy day.

Lovely Pigeon: A Right Royal Pop Up

A not-so-wee pop-up shop from Kirsty Thomas, aka Lovely Pigeon, who will be showcasing her wares and those of around 50 other Scottish and UK designers in Murray Library. The shop will also serve as the official merch stall for the Fence Collective's HomeGame festival, with band t-shirts and more offbeat souvenirs…

'Til Death Us Do Part(y)

Warehouse party from Optimo providing an alternative to all that wedding nonsense, with JD Twitch & JG Wilkes on the decks and a live set from local noisemakers Divorce.
