The festival has been created by Ian Arnott of Kirkcaldy based Breakout Events to give people something to look forward to after lockdown.

The street will then host in effect a mini Links Market as the showmen return after missing out entirely on their traditional 2020 and 2021 visits - followed by a second stage for dance and acoustic acts.

And all profits will go to the NHS with Fife Healthy Charity standing to benefit.
