Families gather at the Venue in Methil for Positive Revolution
Families gather at the Venue in Methil for Positive Revolution

The local community came together for a brand new event in Methil at the weekend, and it proved a great success.

Several Fife bands, performers and local campaign groups joined forces for the Positive Revolution event at The Venue in Methil on Sunday, and organisers said it was very warmly received by members of the community who attended.

Mark Boyd who organised the event was delighted with the turnout and the overall positive feeling surrounding the event, and is already working on plans for next month!

He said: “It was a great day, with lots of original music, good intentions, toasties, beer, coffee and free cakes consumed!

“We’ve had some great feedback about the format and will be releasing the details of the next show - which will be held on Sunday, March 1 - next week on Twitter and Facebook.”

Organised as a fun event where local people could get together to enjoy bands, hear about local campaigns and chat about the issues which matter to them in an entertaining surrounding, The Venue played host to several up-and-coming Fife bands, including Sorry Hollywood, Auxygen and The Twistettes.

Also at the event were local groups CLEAR Buckhaven and LMRC, which had a very successful day gathering 75 signatures on its petition to re-install the Levenouth rail link.

Mark added: “There was a ridiculously large amount of awesome individual good will and effort went into pulling off this event with too many people to thank individually, but we really couldn’t have got this event up and running without their help and I thank them so much for that.”
