SIR Scallywag and the Golden Underpants head to the Assembly Rooms on Saturday, as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra present their annual family concert, hosted by children’s TV star Chris Jarvis, pictured.

Sir Scallywag is a six-year-old knight, charged with retrieving King Colin’s missing Golden Underpants.

Set to music by Paul Rissmann, the piece is narrated by Jarvis, known to kids from the likes of The Broom Cupboard, The Demon Headmaster, CBeebies and Show Me, Show Me.

Performances will be at noon and 2.30pm, each lasting 50 minutes.

The programme of music includes Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants by Rissmann and Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, conducted by Ben Gernon.

In the lead up to the concert, musicians from the SCO have been exploring the story of Sir Scallywag through workshops at the Sick Kids Hospital and public workshops, which were held at the North Edinburgh Arts Centre and National Museum of Scotland.

Similarly, in the 90 minutes before Saturday’s performances there will be the opportunity to join in a series of fun-filled activities with the book’s illustrator Korky Paul, as well as the chance to play musical instruments.

So to discover if Sir Scallywag succeeds in his quest for the Golden Underpants, join the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the Assembly Rooms on Saturday. Suitable for three years and upwards.
