New Festival Trophies! (June 2016)
This year the festival are delighted to announce the addition of four new trophies! These are for Men’s and Women’s Traditional Singing, Bothy Ballad and Ceilidh Band (Under 16 category) and have very kindly been donated by supporters of the festival : Jimmy Hutchison, Doris Rougvie, Graham Livingstone and Gordon Shand respectively. A huge thank you to you all.
Venue change and improved access (May 2016)
We are delighted to announce a slight venue alteration in as much as we are now using the downstairs room of the Old Town Hall rather than the upstairs one. This means that our singing competitions, talk and fiddle workshop will all be downstairs, wheelchair accessible if required! No more flights of narrow stairs to contend with. We are hoping that this will provide greater accessibility for our festival attendees.
Fundraiser: Fiddle Workshop with Paul Anderson
We’ve been busy organising a fiddle workshop on Sunday 8th November 2015 with Paul Anderson booked and raring to go! We will be in the upstairs room of the Old Town Hall for the workshop. We look forward to seeing you all again in Falkland for a great day of music.
Festival addition (17/6/2015)
News just in: Allan Henderson will be joining Fergie MacDonald and his Ceilidh Band on Friday night in the Village Hall; some great music to dance to and listen to as well! Allan will also join Fergie at the button key accordion workshop on Saturday morning, it’s going to be great fun!
Change to camping arrangements (16/6/2015)
Due to groundworks being carried out on the original campsite on Falkland Estate, we now have camping in the field opposite The Stables. This is for tents only and cars must be parked in the car park opposite. An area at the top of the car park will be set aside for campervans. Toilet facilities will still be provided. A stand pipe may be in place by the end of next week but if not, there is access to fresh water from an outside tap at The Stables. Please contact us for more details or to book your pitch.
Our programme / flyer is now ready so you should see it around and about Fife.
Tickets are available from The Bruce Inn and Pillars of Hercules. You can also call us to book tickets on 01337 840450 or via the ticket link on our website.
