DUNFERMLINE’S Food and Craft weekend will return on May 4 and 5.

And it's shaping up to be even bigger and better with more than 50 stalls, covering a range of street food such as hog roast, Middle Eastern vegan-influenced dishes, fish and frites and homemade pies.

For the first time, there will be stalls and buskers at the Glen Gates on both days.

On Saturday, May 4, Kingdom FM will be hosting live music at their roadshow in the High Street, located at the gap site in front of the bus station. Performers include Supa & Da Kryptonites and Sophie de Rose.

The event is organised by Dunfermline Delivers and the Kingsgate Shopping Centre.

Chris Foote, events manager at Dunfermline Delivers, said: “We’d like to thank our BID businesses who are once again bringing lots of enthusiasm and ideas to help to make this a great weekend.

“Over 10 venues are participating and a new addition this year includes a tasting event by Turkish restaurant Antioch.

“This time, we have at least three key sites for the Food & Craft Weekend to encourage footfall throughout the town – there will be stalls and buskers at the Glen Gates, Kingdom FM is at the gap site and there are lots of stalls and activities in the Kingsgate.”

Hot doughnuts, waffles, cupcakes, clootie dumplings from Clootie McTootie and artisan bread will also be on sale.

If all of that works up a thirst, then visitors could sample or buy locally-brewed beers, Lundin Gin, Scottish rums and wines, apple juices and home-made ginger beers.

Karen Davidson, assistant manager at the Kingsgate, said: “The event brings a large amount of footfall into town, around 7,500 people last year, dwell time is increased significantly and the event creates a buzz about the town.”

In a nod to Star Wars, May the 4th be with you, Aileen Wright from Sew Yarn Crafty will be helping visitors to sew a Storm Trooper and Carnegie Birthplace Museum will be welcoming families to their Dinosaur Egg Crafts event.

There’s lots more to keep the kids entertained, including balloon-modelling, face-painting, foodie craft fun with Doodle & Splat and the colouring wall with local artist Alan Grieve, while Fire Station Creative will be hosting a studio in the Kingsgate.

Street performances by Carnegie Youth Theatre will pop up around town and dances from around the world will be staged by On Pointe Performing Arts in the shopping centre.
