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.
