Dare ProtoPlay (10 - 12 August 2012)

Infinite Jest (23 June 2012 - 26 August 2012) - Infinity is a tough concept for the human mind, but it's one we find ourselves drawn to. This intriguing exhibition, featuring three artists from around the world explores infinite loops, circular narration and möbius strips - Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, Dundee DD1 4DY- www.dca.org.uk

Dundee Relay for Life (25 - 26 August 2012) - An inspirational event raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Rhod Gilbert - The Man with the Flaming Battenberg Tattoo (31 August 2012) - Dundee welcomes back the Welsh comedy sensation on a tour which has, frankly, the silliest title we've ever heard. This is the comedy of a man infuriated by the oddest things the modern world can throw at him. With other comedians this might seem like well-trodden ground, but Rhod has a fresh take on this and is so energetic and likeable that you're swept along with him. If you've only seen him on TV comedy panel shows, don't miss the chance to see him live - Caird Hall, City Square, Dundee, DD1 3BB - www.cairdhall.co.uk
