Raith Rovers’ Hall of Fame Show Welcomes Football Icons For a Star-Studded Night at Adam Smith Theatre

This year’s Hall of Fame event will be on Monday, 20th November with doors opening at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start.

The anticipation surrounding the event has intensified with the announcement of the headline acts. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the evening, where football luminaries John Barnes and Gary McAllister will be in attendance.

The Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy is bracing itself for what promises to be a memorable event on Monday, November 20th. This marks the Hall of Fame’s triumphant return after a hiatus, brought about by the pandemic and extensive renovations that saw the theatre closed for a staggering three years.

Gary McAllister, with his illustrious MBE title, is no stranger to the limelight. A deep dive into his career reveals a treasure trove of memories. With 57 caps for Scotland, a treble win with Liverpool, and notable stints with Leeds United and Coventry City; his contributions to football are indisputable. Post his playing career, the Motherwell prodigy took to management, steering teams like Leeds and Coventry and serving as a coach and assistant manager at various clubs.

There’s no discussing English football without a nod to John Barnes. Revered as one of the sport’s all-time greats, his exploits with Liverpool, where he secured two league titles and two FA Cups, are the stuff of legends. His 79 caps for England further cemented his place among the elites.

Adding to the allure of the event, Barnes and McAllister will partake in an exclusive pre-show lunch at the Dean Park Hotel, which promises to be an intimate affair with Q&A sessions.
