» updated

These St Andrews events are on every day, week, or some other regular repeat, at these times, though you should check for special arrangements over holidays periods.

As I very rarely receive information about the ending of a regular event the date of an entry is included as [May 2016] to help you judge how likely it is to be running. Entries are purged occasionally, usually over the summer.
