Sunshine and live music sounded like an ideal family occasion – and that’s just how it played out on Sunday at Leven’s Letham Glen.

An all-afternoon event featured a handful of live groups and solo performers.

However, the scene resembled a picnic festival, rather than a musical extravaganza, with a large number of youngsters turning up with their families.

The previous day, enthusiasts of two-wheeled transport gathered to admire an array of motorbikes, scooters and trikes in the Letham Glen Custom Show.

Both events were organised by Letham Glen Community Support Centre (LGCSC) as an attraction for adults (and famlies) to complement the broad range of children’s activities served up at the venue.

LGCSC’s Caroline Mitchell said they wanted to “open new windows” and bring new elements of interest to the Glen, so that more people could enjoy its open-air welcome.

Artists on Sunday’s musical bill included Urgency XUK, Mark McKenzie, Hot Cars, Psychotherapy, Scott Gilbert and Big Bad Boogaloo, delivering rhythm and blues, rock, and classic punk cover versions.

At Saturday’s bike show, a number of the machines had been engineered, customised, shortened or lengthened, and decorated with the owners’ individual touch, while trophies were awarded in a selection of categories.
