Always affectionally known as the ‘Auld Grey Toun,’ in 2022 we were awarded City status. So now we’re officially a royal ‘City’…
Quite rightly too,
Because some of Scotland’s most famous monarchs lie at rest in the Abbey, including King Robert The Bruce of course.
Altogether there are…
Six kings, two queens and three princes buried at Dunfermline Abbey.
Dunfermline is famous for lots more besides Scottish history.
For example did you know…
Golf owes it’s debut in USA thanks to Dunfermline?
The Damask industry.
Are all part of our rich heritage
Music is a big part of culture here and we’ve hosted countless musical acts and festivals over the years.
The Dutch College Swing Band.
The Jeff Beck Group.
Stiff Little Fingers.
Therefore as you see,
We Fifers love music, independent thinking, appreciation of the Arts. And the history, culture and future of the 'Auld Grey Toun' both ancient and modern really is our passion. And we want the whole world to know :)
