Glenrothes 70th Birthday
Edinburgh Book Festival Comes to Glenrothes as part of a year long programme of events to celebrate the towns 70th birthday
'ReimagiNation: Glenrothes' is a three-day festival bringing stories into Fife’s New Town and celebrating those of the area.
Produced by the Edinburgh International Book Festival — the world’s biggest festival of its kind — in collaboration with Fife Cultural Trust, this is the fourth stop in a tour of Scotland’s five New Towns, arriving in Glenrothes to help explore what seven decades of life have been like in the town.
Brilliant authors and speakers come to the town from across the UK, including Fife’s own crime-writing queen Val McDermid as well as a clutch of the country’s top thriller writers, broadcasters Sally Magnusson and Archie Macpherson, and plenty of entertainment for kids too — meaning ReimagiNation is perfect for all the family.
Listening to local people has shaped ReimagiNation, on everything from authors to include to opinions on the future of Glenrothes, resulting in a festival full of activities, free drop-in events and even a pop-up Waterstones bookshop. Whether you’re an avid reader or simply passionate about your area, we think you’ll find something to love at ReimagiNation.
Tell your tale in your town, make your voice heard, and listen to some of the best writers around.
ReimagiNation runs from 17 to 19 May
The event is being promoted by Go Glenrothes as part of a programme of events celebrating the towns birthday and the Year of Young People.
