Calendar Synchronisation

It is possible to synchronise our events calendar with your own devices, either directly or through another calendar such as your Google Calendar or Windows Live Calendar.

Full instructions for Google and Windows Live are below.

Use the following URL as the setting for your particular synchronisation application:

If you have a newer application on you smart phone or tablet, you may find the setting where you can add this directly.
If you have an older Android phone, for example, and you link your calendar to a Google account, you can synchronise our calender to you Google Calendar.
If you use Windows Live, you can also synchronise our calendar to that, so that you will see the events in the Windows Live Mail application, for example.
