Welcome Summer’s in bloom and here at ONFife we’re getting ready for another season of quality entertainment for the whole household. In THEATRES, we’ve booked a broad range of live music, dance, comedy and drama – from cabaret to kids shows via pop, country and classic rock cover bands. We’re especially excited to unveil our new Actors Studio series. Host Ross Owen will delve into the comedy world of BBC Scotland sensation Still Game, offering a rare audience with various stars of the country’s favourite TV series. We’re also thrilled to bring you more of the immensely popular Murder Mystery nights we’ve been plotting across all of our venues. Over in MUSEUMS, meanwhile, a pair of major new exhibitions open at Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries as we explore the history of Dunfermline’s seminal punk outliers The Skids and dig into the wonderful world of wildlife through our colourful, interactive, family-friendly summer show titled Blooming Marvellous.

Finally, in LIBRARIES we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Glenrothes with Reimagination – a special book festival for Fife’s ‘New Town’ featuring Tennis godmother Judy Murray, Kirkcaldy’s own Val McDermid and much more.

SPAN – A Tale of Three Bridges EXHIBITION Free during opening hours

A hands-on family friendly exploration of the three iconic bridges that cross the Forth. Learn about the bold Victorians who risked their lives to create the magnificent rail bridge.

Developed in partnership with Deep Sea World, SPAN features stunning historic photographs of all 3 bridges. Methil Heritage Centre

If you like defying the norms of social convention and enjoy laughter and fun-fuelled rebellion and reflection in equal measure, then please do come forth.

Using video technology and costume changes, this is a nostalgic journey through the life and times of Debbie Harry and co. All the hits, plus new material to bring the show right up to the present day.

his experiences in the trenches - fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship.

Benedick is never getting married. Not ever. And Beatrice can’t imagine a man she could tolerate, let alone fall in love with. They might just be the perfect couple.

Join four of Ireland’s favourite country music sensations, all in one super show featuring Louise Morrisey, Stephen Smyth, Anthony McBrien and Curtis Magee. Between them, they have scored countless accolades, notched up over 30 number 1 songs and toured all over the world to packed houses. Each of these four stars will showcase all their trademark hit songs with backing from the fantastic Keltic Storm. Rothes Halls

Anything might happen when this combustible combination and their friends gather for a party. Shakespeare’s joyous comedy fizzes with sparkling wit and romance. And although the path of true love certainly does not run smooth, as the lovers face obstacles both accidental and on purpose, it’s impossible not to be swept along by the original, and possibly the best ever rom-com. Bard in the Botanics – Scotland’s premier Shakespeare company – comes to the Adam Smith Theatre for the first time with the original romcom – the perfect treat for a summer’s evening.

The Art Gallery shows temporary and longer term exhibitions, many of them featuring selections from our outstanding Scottish art collection. See highlights from the history of Kirkcaldy in the Moments In Time long-term Museum display. Where else can you see a Raith Rovers turnstile, a penny farthing bicycle, a harpoon from a whaling ship and a chair made of coal all on display together?! You can investigate your own history further in our Local and Family History Centre... and why not also take time for refreshments in the CafĂŠ Wemyss with its stunning display of pottery?
