A Fife town is planning to move its popular Hogmanay ceilidh into people’s homes.

Cupar’s end of year family celebration has been cancelled this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

But the organisers still want to make it possible for people to bring in the new year in style – albeit in their own homes rather than the Corn Exchange.

The decision to cancel the ceilidh, which has been staged by Cupar Community Council for 20 years, won’t come as a surprise.

However, all is not lost…

The community council’s George Sharp said: “We do not want to deprive the families who have supported the ceilidh over the years of their new year festivities, so the Lomond Ceilidh Band are performing a live online concert, from 9pm, on December 31, to bring in the new year.

The band will be including your requests and dedications during this special concert... hope to see you there!”

The online concert will be live from 9pm on December 31 until 12.30am on January 1 – and it will be available to watch for a further week afterwards.

Tickets are £15 each or £30 per household.

To guarantee special requests and dedications are included in the show, these should be submitted by December 28.

The aim will be to read out and play as many requests as possible on the night, so booking early is advised.To submit requests for inclusion in the show, go to
