Welcome to St Andrews Year of Celebration!

2012 is a very special year for St Andrews. The town has been honoured with the title “Scotland’s Creative Place 2012″ in recognition of the superb array of festivals and events that are happening throughout the year.

St Andrews has been given a cash prize of 150,000 as a winner of the Creative Place Awards, a national initiative that aims to recognise and reward the contribution of local organisations to the vital cultural life of Scotland’s communities.

The application for the award was led by St Andrews Partnership and the Byre Theatre who are now working together to create a vibrant and jam-packed cultural calendar for this year. With the funding from the Creative Place Awards, St Andrews is able to host its own Year of Celebration 2012 which hopes to showcase the fantastic variety of cultural events held annually as well as hosting some brand-new ones.   

On this site, we’ll be featuring all the events that are coming up – as well as looking back to those which have already taken place. The site will be updated regularly, so visit us often to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

2012 will be a year to remember in St Andrews – come and be part of it!
