Crail festival


19 - 29 July

Welcome to the newly designed website promoting the 2017 Crail Festival.    Thank you to Peter Salkeld who designed the site and to Iain Inglis for collating all of the material.   The festival committee began work on the project in October last year, ably assisted by Tony Kingsbury.   Thanks also to Geoff Robinson for recruiting advertisers and to Helen Byres who is organising the street market.  

More than three decades ago the festival began simply as an art exhibition, again a central feature, but has developed into a much larger celebration of art and entertainment spanning ten days.   This is very much in keeping with our remit to support performing and community arts within the Royal Burgh of Crail and beyond.

A varied programme of daytime events for children remains at the heart of the programme.    Similarly, the adult programme caters for a wide range of tastes in music, comedy, theatre, literature, arts and crafts.   Our award-winning putting green is open during the festival and beyond.   The Art Exhibition opens throughout the festival and the Street Market features on the middle Saturday.   

We are grateful for the continued support of our trustees and to the many community volunteers who support the festival.    

Thank you for visiting the site and browsing through this year’s events.   We look forward to welcoming you in July!

Ian Mooney (Chairman)
