All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Fife Free Press

The Fife Free Press is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the central southern coast of the Kingdom of Fife, around the town of Kirkcaldy and including the smaller towns of Aberdour, Burntisland and Wemyss.

It was founded in 1871 as The Fife Free Press, & Kirkcaldy Guardian, but dropped the & Kirkcaldy Guardian from the masthead in 1892. It’s the lead title in a group of weekly newspapers for Fife published by Strachan & Livingston Ltd, a branch of the nationwide group of regional newspapers, Johnston Press. The editorial offices are in Kirkcaldy.

Founded as a broadsheet, it remained a broadsheet right up until November 2010, when it relaunched in tabloid format.

It comes out on Thursdays.
