Must Do Events in St Andrews, 2016

Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is frantically doing their best to prepare for family, friends and the most festive season of them all. But what comes next? Don’t fuss, if you’re looking to stay in one of our exquisite luxury lodges not three miles outside of beautiful St Andrews in the New Year; we’ll make sure you’re up to date on the events and festivals around the stunning town with this helpful list. 2016 is promising to be another great year for events in St Andrews.

Snowdrop Spectacular

If you’re looking to celebrate a white Christmas just a little later than usual, then maybe you should think about attending Cambo Estate’s Snowdrop Spectacular. Running from the 30th of January till the 13th of March, the acres of woodland surrounding the estate are brimming with the wonderful flowers.

This year, the Spectacular will incorporate Snowdrops by Starlight, a trip through the woodlands at night, illuminated by thousands upon thousands of fairy lights. Considered a ‘magical wonderland’, it’s a treat for kids and adults that are looking to be dazzled by lights, sounds and wonderful walks. As far as events in St Andrews go, this is one you shouldn’t miss.

The Farmers’ Market

It might not be a once-a-year event but St Andrews Farmers’ Market is a delight, attracting local growers and producers each month with the offer of a stall and the chance to sell their home-made wares.

Starting on the 6th of February, 2016, the Market runs on the first Saturday of each month from 9am till 1pm and is the perfect opportunity to enjoy local treats. There’s even a chance to catch a special cookery demonstration, an incredible opportunity to learn just how St Andrews goods got so, well, good!

New Year’s Golfing

Of course, a trip to St Andrews wouldn’t be complete without taking advantage of its position as the ‘Home of Golf’. With our lodges only a short distance from the Old Course, one of the most iconic and well respected Golf Courses in the world, Elderburn is perfect for golf enthusiasts looking to follow in the footsteps of legends.

With the 2016 Winter Package from St Andrews Links, there’s even less of a reason to miss out on an unforgettable golfing experience.

If you’re looking to explore the gorgeous woodlands of St Andrews, have a couple rounds of golf or just wander the cultural treat that is our Farmers’ Market, it’s shaping up to be an exciting year for events in St Andrews!
