FIRST MUSIC FESTIVAL SPONSOR CONFIRMED!

Huge thanks to Anstruther Fish Bar who have become the first confirmed sponsor of this year's music festival - sponsoring local performer Cody Feechan.  


If you would like to get involved with sponsoring any of the bands or equipment, do get in touch.  The costs of staging the event are high and all contributions help us to keep ticket prices down as well as covering expenses for the bands coming from far and wide to entertain Silverburn.  


As well as sponsoring a band, you could also have your company's branding on display in the main music marquee or surrounding area, contact Duncan Mitchell for more information on 01592 759371.


If you can't run to a sponsorship package, you could still support us by supplying a raffle prize for our annual prize draw.  So far we've had some amazing prizes donated including VIP passes to Ryze Dundee; Family Season Ticket to Glamis Castle and free return travel between any 2 Scotrail stations in Scotland for a family, thanks to ScotRail.  More and more prizes are coming in every day and the raffle greatly helps us to contribute to the costs of the festival, with any surplus left over being reinvested in the Park, so we do rely on you!

NEW SIGNAGE COMPLETE

Navigate your way around the Park

With huge thanks to the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust we have completed the installation of a range of signage around the Park following their grant of £960 towards the costs.


Improved signage was requested repeatedly by those of you who took part in our last large-scale community consultation in late 2017 and so we are delighted to have the new signs in place, and as you'll see when you visit, many of them are also in Gaelic, as we continue to develop links with Gaelic-speakers and visitors.

Git oan yer bike at Silverburn Park!

Silverburn Park is thinking about loaning bikes to visitors. This would be a FREE service, encouraging local people to visit Silverburn, have fun and be healthy. 


A chance to cycle on traffic-free paths and improve your confidence in the saddle! 


A way of introducing children to cycling without having to carry their bike home when wee legs get tired!


And a good way to learn some basic bicycle maintenance, and to get a helping hand with fixing your own bike.
