Fife Festival of Music (FFoM)hosted a very successful family fun day in Glenrothes at the weekend.

Sunday’s event saw young people from across the Kingdom and their families come together at Auchmuty High School to enjoy all things musical.

There were a range of activities on offer during the afternoon, including workshop sessions and performances.

The fun day, which is now in its third year, is the ‘C’ period of Fife Festival of Music and it is held at a different venue around the region each year.

‘Come and try’ workshop sessions were available for samba, drum kit, ukulele, pipe band drumming, singing and music making for the young.

There were also performances by a Primary Schools Flashmob Choir, the Fife Primary Teachers’ Ukulele Group - and a family concert by ‘Travelling by Tuba’.
