Learning from the past …

Cupar’s Heritage Centre and Museum is gearing up for its 2024 opening and exhibition. We will share more on this as the clock ticks down. Before then, they have published a series of talks that will be held this year covering a wider range of topics – from close to home and further afield.

The talks are open to all. Please feel free to share with friends and family.

All meetings are scheduled to take place in Cupar’s Age Concern Centre (entry via the Bonnygate Car Park entrance).

Each session commences at 7.30 p.m. prompt. Entry for Cupar Heritage Members is free of charge. Visitors will be charged £5 on the door.
