St Andrew’s Day

St Andrew is Scotland's patron saint and on November 30 we celebrate St Andrew's Day with the rest of the world.

St Andrew's philosophy was simple: share what you have with those less fortunate and be kind to each other. Each year we celebrate these principles with a host of parties and special events for everyone to enjoy!
