The “What’s On” listings below represent our pick of the events taking place in St Andrews and surrounding area over the coming weeks and months.
These are just a few of the wide selection of events on offer in St Andrews. For a more comprehensive list, we recommend a visit to the excellent Event St Andrews website - this is a superb, independently-compiled comprehensive list of occasions large and small, and is especially good for community and University events.
Very occasionally, event organisers have to change arrangements at the last minute – so before travelling any distance, we always recommend you contact the individual event directly to check that it is still going ahead as planned. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are another excellent way of hearing about any late changes.
