Sat 30 June - Sun 8 July St Andrews Cathedral – 1318 to 2018 This summer marks the 700th anniversary of the consecration of St Andrews Cathedral in Fife. During the Middle Ages, St Andrews Cathedral was the largest and most important church in Scotland. The Cathedral was officially consecrated, or blessed, on 5 July 1318, in the presence of King Robert the Bruce. This occasion in many ways acted as the Cathedral’s ‘opening ceremony’, and was a great national event attended by seven bishops and the leading nobles of Scotland. To commemorate this major anniversary in the history of St Andrews and Scotland there will be a series of events held in June and July 2018; History
