With just weeks to go until Anstruther Harbour Festival, organisers are promising a weekend of activities to appeal to all.

As ever, there will be emphasis on family fun, with things to keep youngsters entertained throughout the festival, from exotic and unusual animals to juggling.

Most of the activities will take place in an Event Tent on the middle pier or at the Scottish Fisheries Museum stage on the Folly.

Children will also find fun stalls in the Zulu Gallery, an art exhibition in the Merchant’s Room and the Model Boats Club display in the workshop.

The museum and the RNLI have their open days during the festival, while the East Neuk Open Studios members will be throwing open their doors over the weekend.

The museum is also offering free entry on the Saturday to families to explore the galleries and displays.

The Fisher Lass and Lad crowning ceremony will be taking place harbourside after they arrive aboard the sailing drifter the Reaper, which will be open for boarding on the day.

The fun continues throughout Saturday afternoon into early evening along the harbour front, with further entertainment and activities on Sunday.

Locations and times are subject to change, depending on weather.

The festival takes place from May 29-31 – see www.anstrutherharbourfestival.co.uk
