The Alhambra Theatre plays host to a night of star names in aid of a fantastic Fife charity later this year.

Sir Chris Hoy is on stage on Tuesday, October 8 for a night which aims to raise a huge sum for the Craws Nest Trust – perhaps better known to many as the East Neuk Wheelchair Appeal.

It has already raised over £600,000 through a plethora of events big and small, and continues to help people with mobility issues.

Sir Chris will be centre stage at the Dunfermline venue a to talk about his remarkable sporting career which saw him crowned world cycling champion six times, and deliver no fewer than seven Olympic Games medals – six of them gold.

That haul made him the second most decorated cyclist in Olympic history.
