The OnFife publication covers Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy, Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline and Lochgelly Centre, as well as the region’s museums and libraries.

It spotlights live music, great theatre and exhibitions as well as dance, and more from the N ational Theatre Live series which brings the West End into Fife.

Big names include Craig Hill who brings his Fringe sell-out show ‘Someone’s Gonna Get Kilt’ to Carnegie Hall on October 20, and the Adam Smith on January 26.

Hill is hugely popular with Fife audiences, and if you missed hin in Edinburgh last month, then this is the perfect catch-up.
