St Andrew’s Day

St Andrew’s Day is Scotland’s national day and is the perfect opportunity for everyone right across the country to come together and celebrate some of the shared values that unite us: kindness and fairness.

This year we are determined to make St Andrew’s Day more special than ever before. That’s why we’re encouraging one kind act and supporting the global Fair Saturday movement – giving you plenty of options when it comes to choosing how you celebrate the day.

Whether you do one small act of kindness for another person, or head along to one of the more than 100 events happening across the country, your actions can have a real impact on someone else’s life.


How can you get involved?




To get involved there are three simple steps:


  • Choose your act of kindness – Whether it’s helping an elderly neighbour or popping into your local food bank with some donations, anyone can make someone’s day this St Andrew’s Day.
  • Do the act – Commit to one kind act and help make someone’s day – no matter how big or small, it will help make a difference.
  • Inspire other acts of kindness – Share your support and inspire others online by using #onekindact and #WeAreScotland this #StAndrewsDay on social media and together we can bring the whole country together through our acts of kindness.




To get involved and join this global initiative there are just three simple steps:


  • Organise an event of your choice – It can be as big or as small as you like and can be anything from music and theatre to dance, photography and cinema.
  • Choose a social cause – All of the shows that take part collaborate with social causes for three main reasons: to publicly acknowledge the work of the organisation, to spread their message and to help contribute funds to the amazing work they do.
  • Let us shout about your work – We will publish your show on the St Andrew’s Fair Saturday website and mobile app to promote your show. All you need to do is tell us who you are and what you are planning to do this St Andrew’s Fair Saturday. We’d also love for you to join the conversation by using the #FairSaturdayScotland and #WeAreScotland when sharing any news on your upcoming event. To register visit
