Rock bands and local charities will share the stage this weekend in Methil for a brand new event which aims to bring local people together.

‘Postive Revolution’ will take place at The Venue on Sunday, with organisers hoping it will give locals the chance to have fun in a different way in order to communicate about the issues that affect their lives in Levenmouth.

The Levenmouth Rail Campaign (LMRC) and CLEAR Buckhaven will appear at the event alongside bands Sorry Hollywood, Auxygen and The Twistettes, as well as performers Chris Corrigan and David Wood.

It is hoped this can become a regular platform for community engagement, with the group already planning more events for 2015.

It has certainly already caught the imagination of the local community, with several people on Facebook already adding the event’s official’badge’ to their profile picture as a show of support.

Event organiser Mark Boyd thinks this is a concept which can inspire change among local people.

“So many people in Levenmouth are unaware of the good work being done by charities and campaign groups in their area,” he said.

“Even in this age of communication, groups find it hard to reach out and grab the attention of the very people who would be interested in them.”

Mark added: “Positive Revolution hopes to give these groups a great platform to engage with a new audience, with as many creative ventures under the one roof as we can squeeze in.

“Judging by the response already on social media, they will receive a warm welcome.”
