What's New in 2015 for the Anstruther Harbour Festival weekend  The first thing that's new is that this year's Festival will be earlier in the year - from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 May.  The next is that the Festival's Saturday events will take place together with the Scottish Fisheries Museum's Open Day with the museum's Reaper sailing drifter open to the public and the town's Fisher Lad & Lass ceremony, and with Anstruther Lifeboat's Open Day. And the Festival weekend will coincide with East Neuk Studios Open Weekend, with 14 artists' studios open to the public in Cellardyke alone.  Something else that's new is our much improved website - thanks to Buzz Computers and funding provided by Anstruther Community Kist
