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.

On the Rocks – Student Arts Festival
The first On The Rocks took place in 2009, when a group of students decided that the separate annual film and theatre festivals should be combined to create one bigger, better event. This event was designed to showcase not only the best of drama and filmmaking in St Andrews, but furthermore to provide a platform to demonstrate the creativity and talent of artists, photographers, dancers, musicians and comedians. The initiative attracted the attention of several influential actors and actresses, with Sean Connery, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Siobhan Redmond, Crispin Bonham Carter, Joanna Lumley and Simon Pegg signing up as festival patrons.
The festival has grown over the years to become the largest student-run arts festival in Scotland hosting over 40 events annually.
