Hallowe'en in Kirkcaldy: Walks, shows, talks, and spooky stories across town
and live on Freeview channel 276
Hallowe’en falls on Tuesday with a host of things to do, places to visit, and scary walks to embark upon, if you are brave enough!
Go carefully down Kirk Wynd this weekend - for on Saturday night there will be ghosts about in Kirkcaldy Old Kirk yard and down the town, rising from their graves to tell their stories to those who dare to listen!
Those fearless individuals willing to go on Kirkcaldy Civic Society’s Ghost Walk should meet at the Hunter Hall in Kirk Wynd on Saturday, October 28 between 6:00pm and 6.20pm. Intrepid guides from Kirkcaldy Civic Society will lead you through the darkened graveyard and down the town, in small groups at five minute intervals for safety, to meet some of Kirkcaldy’s past characters.
You will make your way to sanctuary for spooky refreshments to revive any flagging spirits – no charge for the walk but a donation is requested for the ghoulish refreshments. Families are also welcome and there will be a small prize for the best fancy dress costume worn on the Ghost Walk.
In the event of heavy rain, the guides will lead you to shelter in the Old Kirk itself

Amby said: “We like to keep the show fresh and bring new acts to town. We’re always working on new things at the dance school, and this is reflected in the show - and people are always keen to be involved.”
On Sunday, the Kings hosts a holistic fayre which runs from midday to 4:00pm and is open to anyone who’d like to drop in. It will feature “a diverse coven of healers, seeked, artisans and revelers” who will take over two of the rooms at the Esplanade venue. Entry is just £5.
