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.

East Neuk Open Studios, Autumn 2015
East Neuk Open Studios is a twice-yearly Art Trail taking in over 30 artist and designer studios and workshops throughout this beautiful corner of Fife, known as the East Neuk. This autumn’s dates are 10-11 and 17-18 October, from 10.30am to 4.30pm each day.
Artists welcome visitors, demonstrate and talk about their work. There’s always an exciting range of paintings, textiles, prints, jewellery, illustrations, photographs, metalwork and stained glass for sale too.
This is a free event – just follow the red balloons and pop in to visit any participating artist you like! However, some East Neuk studios are often in old, traditional buildings and therefore not always suited for access by the less able, wheelchairs and prams. We recommend contacting the artist in advance to enquire about access to their specific studio space.
Fife Farmers’ Market
Offering a wide selection of meat, fish, dairy, fruit & veg, preserves, beverages, baking & confectionary, crafts, soap and many other items. Look out for the special cookery demonstrations too!
