What’s On Around Largo House
Largo House, East Fife, Scotland
Welcome to What’s on in our area in February. We have some fine offers from our usual sources of entertainment. The link provided will take you to our suggestion, but it will be one of many events at the venue so have a look at their programme for even more. I’ve trawled the internet for new venues and interesting events. Give then a try. We live in a brilliant location with so much going on for all tastes. Have fun!
I’ve given a web link in most cases. Please check before you go. As with all exploring, some of our ‘What’s on’ suggestions will be brilliant, some will give you completely new experiences, and others may be a disappointment. I’m putting this list together based on what I think looks interesting.
