The University is playing its part in the St Andrew's Fair Saturday on November 30 with a lively programme of events.

St Andrew's Fair Saturday is Scotland's contribution to Fair Saturday, a global movement with a positive cultural impact that takes place the day after Black Friday. Its aim is to generate a massive mobilisation of people in support of arts and culture to highlight their essential role in building a better future.
