Salute the Saltire

Happy St. Andrew’s Day to all our Scottish readers!

To get those final celebrations in, check out the following:

Head down to the St. Andrew’s Day Fair at the Fleming Collection on Berkeley Street (nearest tube: Green Park).  Scottish designers will be selling their wares – ideal for stocking fillers!  Entry is free (although there’s a £3 optional donation).

Whilst you’re there, why not take a look at ‘The Face of Scotland‘ exhibition, which is a collection of paintings and photos of Scotland’s most famous faces, including Mary Queen of Scots through to Ewan McGregor.

Singing and sipping

For something completely different, head down to St. Martin in the Fields, to hear The Medici Choir celebrate St. Andrew’s Day in words and music.  The concert starts at 9:30pm and tickets start at £6.

If you’re looking for something a bit livelier, View London has a good list of Scottish bars, restaurants and places of interest.

Enjoy ma wee hens!
