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 2021 (PDF file) including our Chair's report on the Society's activities in 2020-21.

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.' See our charity's page on the OSCR website.


Our season of monthly lecture meetings runs from September to June. All are welcome, whether members or not.

Meetings are currently held online. To receive regular updates and Newsletters 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. Previous Newsletters are available on our 'Blog' page.

There's a full list of forthcoming events on our 'Coming events' page, and full lists of talks are available for 2018–19, 2019–20, 2020–21 and 2021–22.

Our online meetings have usually been recorded. To view the recordings, go to the 'Recordings' page.

 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.
