There were chats and chapatis, chapters and catwalks at the annual Adam Smith Festival in Kirkcaldy.
Organised by Kirkcaldy’s Ambitions, the events celebrating the town’s most famous son took in a debate about Adam Smith and a more informal audience with former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Professor Tom Devine.
Prof Devine, who is due to retire as history professor at Edinburgh University, was in conversation with the MP in an evening of personal reflection.
Elsewhere, there was a book festival and genealogy workshop held in Kirkcaldy Galleries.
The High Street was taken over by the tempting aromas of a foodie’s paradise.
Organised by Kirkcaldy 4 All and Fife College, the event featured demonstrations and a cookery challenge.
The Open Up for Summer Festival took over the Postings Centre, with animated films, artwork and courses, as well as rehearsals for West Side Story which will be open to the public.
Alongside the pop-up shops, Edinburgh College of Art ran an all day-cinema event and Fife College displayed artwork by students.
For lovers of Downtown Abbey, there was a chance to dress like Lady Mary.
Catwalk fashion shows also added a touch of glamour to the festival.
