Transition is running a set of films over July & August showcasing inspiring films about climate change, the environment & sustainability. Most of the films are free to attend, with some charging a nominal fee of £2 to cover venue hire charges.

Transition’s May Picnic

A picnic in St Andrews botanical gardens on a hot, sunny, Saturday in May – no better place to spend a few hours playing and socialising amongst a back drop of living colour…

Transition held its end of term picnic in the park and asked everyone who came along, ”Why does St Andrews need the botanic gardens ?”

The range of responses shows the value of this incredible green space to visitors. If you would like to post your entry to this question please post to our Facebook page.
