One of the largest regional events of its kind in the UK, the Pittenweem Arts Festival returns with over 100 artists and makers from across Britain showing in venues around the pretty East Neuk fishing village. An estimated 20,00 visitors are expected, and as usual the Festival venues are spread down by the sea, along the harbour, up the wynds and through the streets.
