Free Coach Trip to the Fringe

Postby Rachel Marsh on Mon Aug 08, 2005 10:35 pm

Take a free coach trip to the Fringe Festival courtesy of the PG Society. On 16 August, a coach will leave from outside the Union at noon and drop off in the heart of the festival. At 1am the coach will head back to St. Andrews.

Catch the coach round trip, or opt for a one-way ride. What you do with the day is your prerogative: go shopping, clubbing, drinking, or even see one of the many Fringe shows affiliated with the University.

Below is a list of University productions (we highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance as they may be sold out on that day). Go to www.edfringe.com to purchase tickets.

Contact Rachel Marsh at rm368 to reserve a free space on the bus. While reservations for a place on the bus are not necessary, there are only 40 seats available and many are already taken.

Free Bus Timetable

It's official. Those who want to see Corpus can still catch a free ride on Tuesday depsite the late exit.

The departure from Edinburgh will be as follows:

It will pick up any departing passengers at 1pm who chose to not see Corpus Christi, then swing by the C Electric venue at quarter past one, to pick up those who have seen Corpus.

In a nutshell-You can take the free bus back even if you're seeing Corpus. So, go see Corpus.
