November is an extra special month in St Andrews as it sees the celebration of the saint from whom our town takes its name. St Andrew’s day falls on the 30th November and the entire month will see plenty of events in celebration of the saint as well as all the usual eclectic range of events which St Andrews is proud to hold every month of the year.
Back by popular demand, the Old Course Hotel, St Andrews is proud to play host to the critically acclaimed Fawlty Towers show. Sit back and relax as you are served a true 1970’s three course dinner by Basil, Sybil and Manuel themselves. The interactive dinner show began in 1997 and has been performed in over 20 countries including in London’s West end. Must of the show is improvised and unscripted so literally anything can happen and no two shows will be the same. Definitely a not-to-be-missed experience; get your tickets quick for a night guaranteed to have you in stitches.
