Welcome

Autumn is upon us and we’ve all been beavering away here at ONFife to make sure you have the very best of entertainment to look forward to. The jewel in the crown: Dunfermline’s Carnegie Hall rings in 80 years this October so we’ve put together a programme of events for the whole family – from an exhibit of photographs and images that chart the venue’s storied life so far to a night of cinema which commences with a red carpet screening of The King’s Speech to evoke the spirit of 1937. More on page 28.

Over at Lochgelly we are delighted to welcome the fabulous Birds of Paradise with their poignant story Blanche & Butch while in Comedy East Wemyss boy done good Daniel Sloss performs at Adam Smith Theatre with his latest stand-up show.

We’re otherwise spoiled for highlights this Autumn. Much loved at Adam Smith Theatre, James Yorkston’s Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer gig series tips up for another round of carefully crafted evenings with Radiohead’s Philip Selway, Kurt Cobain favourites The Vaselines and the cryptically monikered Ol’Crabbit John.

By December ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’ which can only mean Panto season! Oh yes it does! Our very magical Tiny Little Christmas Festival brings an array of workshops, family shows and nostalgic films to Carnegie Hall while at Adam Smith Theatre Aladdin swoops into Kirkcaldy on his magic carpet. See pages 23 and 32 Book now to avoid disappointment as tickets are already selling quickly!

Still on music, YolanDa Brown brings a sassy sax with a touch of jazz, soul and reggae to Rothes Hall in October while Deacon Blue lynchpin Ricky Ross brings 30 years of quality classic Scottish pop song writing to Carnegie Hall in November.

Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries opened its doors in May with a host of awards and I would encourage you all to visit and explore all it has to offer inclusive of its fabulous Heaven Scent café! Be sure to look for our Sunday Seminars

series and bone up on your local history, or take full advantage of our free Bookbug sessions, which encourage a love of reading for the next generation. And all of this barely scratches the surface of what our theatres, libraries, musuems, mobile services and heritage sites have to offer. As ever, you’ll find full show listings on our centre pages, which I recommend you pull out and pin up as an at a glance reference. Our website (onfife. com) is the place to go to book tickets and stay up to date with new additions to our events guide. If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, why not check into one of our venues, join the conversation, or post a picture when you attend one of our shows. Enjoy

Harry Potter Murder Mystery

The Mindful Way to Handle Life - with Martin Stepek

Fri 27 Oct | £18 £15.50 conc. Calling all 21+ Potterholics! We’re sending out the owls and calling you to Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries for an evening of wizarding mystery…

We Made It Daily until Jan 2018 | FREE Celebrate the completion of this complex creation which involved archeology, architecture, community, construction and conservation. With film and audio we present people’s stories from the past and present. Over 400 people of all ages helped with research, photography and testing out our ideas. See if you can spot someone you know.

Wed 11 Oct | Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries | 11am | £4

Something is amiss at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and when someone turns up dead at a school for magic it takes a lot more than a normal detective to solve it. It takes someone who really knows a snitch from a niffler!

Sunday Seminars

Bristling With Guns:

Watch events unfold then have your chance to interrogate each suspect in turn. Bring a team or come on your own! Can YOU catch the killer?

How tanks and artillery came to Fife at the end of WW1 By Dr Mike Taylor Sun 17 Sept | 2pm-3pm | £2

Enjoy a Harry Potter themed cocktail on arrival as well as some delicious nibbles.

To commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Dr Mike Taylor is looking at the Home Front from a different perspective; especially all the ordnance which accumulated in towns around Scotland after the end of the hostilities.

Exhibition

Defend Dunfermline Community Gallery | Until Sun 1 October | FREE Honouring both the Home Guard volunteers and the Polish Army in Dunfermline, Defend Dunfermline’s exhibition will take you behind the scenes to delve into top secret anti-invasion defence plans.

Coast Along Community Gallery Mon 9 Oct – Sun 5 Nov | FREE A series of film photographs taken along The Fife Coastal Path and displayed as Japanese scrolls.

Dunfermline, Scotland’s ancient capital, has long been the subject of ideas and fantasies about how it should be laid out and developed. From philanthropicallyfinanced studies by Andrew Carnegie’s trustees to children-designed models and ambitious plans and a whole lot more in between, this Sunday Seminar looks at how the layout of the town has changed over the last 120 years – for better and for worse. Drawing on rarely seen maps, sketches, photographs and films, local architect Sam Foster will guide you through some incredible ideas and invite you to think about what you’d like to see changed over the next century.

With a style that has been described as “poetic”, Scott Hunter’s work pays particular attention to the sequencing of images as he gently probes themes such as transience, femininity and mortality. Through combining traditional and contemporary printing practices, these delicate works aim to blur the lines between analogue and digital photography.

We all get bumps and bruises along the way in life. Some are inevitable, others perhaps a result of our knee-jerk response to events. Whatever the cause we could all do with reclaiming greater control over how we respond to life’s challenges. In this talk and mindfulness session Martin Stepek shows us how to do just that, by developing our ability to observe what’s really going on in our everyday life, and how to take the sting out of our most troublesome thoughts and emotional reactions to events.

By Laragh Quinney, Maps Reading Room Manager National Library of Scotland Sun 29 Oct | 2pm-3pm | £2 Looking at the Dunfermline maps in the collection of the National Library and Dunfermline Reading Room, Laragh Quinney will be putting the historical mapping of Fife into its national context

Brothers In Arms And Blood Brothers Scotland’s War Project (1914-1919)

The Glasgow Boys - A Spirit of Rebellion Until 5 Nov | FREE Linked by friendship and a shared desire to rebel against the existing art establishment in late 19th century Scotland, the Glasgow Boys became internationally famous. They enjoyed critical acclaim and commercial success at home and abroad and their determination to break with tradition paved the way for other young Scottish artists.

Mon 6 Nov – Sun 31 Dec FREE The Canadian Expeditionary Force fought throughout World War One but a particular relationship grew up between the soldiers of the Canadian First Nations and the Scots. Many of the First Nations people had adopted Scottish surnames and in 1916 their regiments visited Scotland. This exhibition tells the story of the visit and how those earlier bonds were strengthened and built on to help make Scotland ‘a country fit for heroes’ in the years after the war. See page 10 for an additional Talk on this exhibit. Interactive

A Spirit of Rebellion offers visitors a rare opportunity to see many of these lauded paintings brought together in one venue – 30 paintings by 17 artists. Fun for All - Why not plan a family visit to see The Glasgow Boys? There are a host of hands-on activities in the exhibition galleries, and Gallery Explorers backpacks to borrow - full of fun things for children to do with their family and friends.

MAC Fife’s Mobile Museum Exhibition

Methil Heritage Centre Methil Heritage Centre is a community museum lying in the heart of Levenmouth, an area stretching from Leven to the Wemyss villages, and from Kennoway to the shores of the River Forth. Located in a former Post Office, the centre hosts a programme of changing exhibitions and events, as well as a tearoom and a shop. The long term display, Levenmouth Lives, offers a flavour of the rich heritage of the area. Evidence of life in early times can be seen in the Pictish carvings in the Wemyss Caves. In more recent times the village of Buckhaven had the second largest fishing fleet in Scotland and Methil was the most important port in Scotland for shipping coal that came from the many mines in Fife.

The show encompasses everything from that period, from the clothes that were worn, to flashbacks from television history,

Gary, Anya and Kevin have been entrusted by the big chap in the red suit himself to help finish the lists for all the boys and girls before Christmas Day, but things aren’t quite going to plan. Santa’s magic machine is playing up creating Christmas chaos, mechanical mayhem and topsy-turvy toys, so it’s up to the Funbox gang to save the day.
