Kirkcaldy’s Old Kirk is inviting locals to climb the 15th century tower at 6am on Sunday morning to welcome Spring from the top of the church with Easter songs. The practice was first brought to the Old Kirk by the organist and choirmaster James Gray over 100 years ago. May morning singers should assemble at the back door of the church just before 6am to climb the stairs to the parapet gallery and continue the tradition. Anyone with a portable musical instrument or camera can bring them too.
