Kirkcaldy is all set to host Scotland's newest Pride event, which takes place on Saturday 1st July 2017 across the town centre. We're hoping for around 2000 visitors from across the country to turn the town every colour of the rainbow. All events are free unless otherwise stated. Here's what to expect:
PARADE (1PM) @ HIGH STREET: The parade will set off from outside Koko Sushi and Cupcake Coffee Box on the High Street, where you can pick up whistles and rainbow flags! It'll travel along the High Street, turn right onto Whytescauseway, and then right onto Wemyssfield and into the Town Square. We'd like to ask all those taking part to stay off the road at Kirk Wind Corner. No alcohol will be permitted in the parade.
FESTIVAL (1.30PM-8PM) @ TOWN SQUARE: At the Town Square, you'll find a market with information stalls and tasty food offerings, as well as some demonstration and activity workshops for all the family. Throughout the afternoon, there's a strong line-up of performances on stage hosted by Fife's international drag superstar, Nancy Clench. The line-up includes music from Nick Shane & Soul TV, Annahar, X-Factor star Lloyd Daniels, and pop sensations Tina Cousins (Mysterious Times) and Kym Mazelle (Enough Is Enough).
YOUTH ZONE (2PM-5PM) @ ADAM SMITH THEATRE: Chill out in our Youth Zone hosted by The Adam Smith Theatre - with a programme of live music from the best in local talent, a craft corner with face painting, Henna tattoos, photo-booth, balloon model making and fruity mocktails, there will be lots to do here too!
THE WIZARD OF OZ (3PM, U, £3) @ ADAM SMITH THEATRE: Journey with Dorothy Gale down the Yellow Brick Road! Don't forget to bring your ruby slippers!
TRANSGENDER FIFE (1.30-6PM) @ NEW VOLLUNTEER HOUSE: Come along to New Volunteer House to find out about the work of Transgender Fife, in a safe and empowering space. There will also be changing areas within the space.
MAMMA MIA SCREENING (7.30PM, PG, £3) @ ADAM SMITH THEATRE: Relive the music of Abba through the famous film version of the hit Broadway musical!
