We've got a fantastic programme lined up for the 2016 season with something for all the family including a fascinating season of talks which you can find listed at the bottom of this page and also here.

On the weekend of 7th & 8th May we will be taking part in the ArtLine festival. Fife's main railway line has a lot to offer with many stations having been adopted like here in Cupar with Cupar Heritage being based within the Station Building. We will be open longer hours on this weekend.

Saturday 7th May 10am-6pm

Sunday 8th May 10am-6pm

Come along and join the fun! Catch a train and see if you can visit all the sites during the festival! More info can be found on our news page here.

2016 marks the 90th anniversary of the building of the Sugar Beet on the outskirts of Cupar in 1926 and we have charted it's rich history from it's construction to the adding of the silo in 1966 to it's closure in 1972 right through to the present day.

Another anniversary for 2016 is Stratheden Hospital which will be turning 150 in July. To celebrate this milestone, we have created a display showing the changes in the purpose of the Hospital and it's role throughout the years.

We will also be having an interactive display of Children's toys throughout the ages with a lot of items we all recognise from our childhood regardless of our ages. There will also be a toy box for everyone to have a play whether you're a big child or a wee one!

The Story of Cupar will also be getting revamped for 2016 telling the tale of Cupar from Pictish times through to the modern day. Look out for our favourite new flying historian - Cuparman - who will be flying through time underneath the main display and visiting some of the eras and buildings throughout history.

If you feel that you have any information, photographs, items or anything else that may be of use to us for any of our exhibitions, please feel free to get in touch with us. You can either Contact Us through the button to your left on the website or pop in and see us on a Wednesday. We look forward to hearing from you!
