Pittenweem Arts Festival

Small Events

Festival 2022 August 6 - 13

Planning this year was with Covid and caution in mind. Back in January it was hard to know how possible a festival in August would be so we took the view that smaller events, focused on the arts, would be less worrying than halls full of people. So, there are no concerts or large gatherings this Festival; the evening presentations are for limited numbers in large spaces and we hope you will enjoy these Small Events.

Tales From The Cave

In the spooky surroundings of Pittenweem’s spectacular St Fillan’s Cave in Cove Wynd, storytellers and singers will entertain children aged 3-10.  This is a revival of a popular Festival tradition, with tales on a Pittenweem theme and songs popular with local children.
