We're taking a summer break. Please come to our AGM and the talk by Kirsty Archer Thompson on Wednesday 15 September.

Introducing the Falkland Society

The Falkland Society exists to promote knowledge and understanding of the archaeological, architectural, historic and artistic heritage, past and present, of Falkland and its wider context in Fife and Scotland.

We also maintain the Historic Falkland website with resources about the history of our town, and the Falkland Historic Buildings wiki.

About the Society

The Falkland Society is run by a Committee elected by its members at the Annual General Meeting. See the AGM Minutes, September 2019 (PDF file) and our Chair's report for 2019-20.

We became a Scottish Registered Charity (registration number SC017201) in March 1988. The Charity's object is: 'To generate an interest in our town by encouraging the preservation of historical features and promoting interest in the cultural, social, and working life of the community in the past and in the present.'


Our season of monthly meetings normally runs from September to June. All are welcome, whether members or not. When meeting in person we take a retiring collection at the close of every session to cover the expenses of organising and managing the series.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, our meetings from June onwards were held online via Zoom and have been recorded; To view the recordings, go to the 'Recordings' page.

To receive regular updates from the Society, and invitations to join us by Zoom for future meetings, please sign up to receive the Society's mailings using the form on our 'Contact' page.

There's a full list of events for the current season on our 'Current Programme' page.

Lists of previous seasons' talks are available for 2018–19, 2019–20 and 2020–21.
