Would you like to access the BBC Public Calendar on your personal device?  We use a system called “Timely” for the calendar, and this tool provides many different access capabilities depending on what device you have.  The following instructions are copied from this time.ly website link:


Events from Timely’s All-in-One Event Calendar can be exported to any system that supports the .ics standard. You can export any calendar view, meaning that if you have a view that only shows certain categories, the exported calendar will bring in only those events.

Exporting your All-in-One Event Calendar to Google Calendar

We have an “Add to Google” field which will export the Calendar feed to your Google calendar. When viewing a Calendar you wish to export, click Subscribe in Google Calendar at the bottom of the Calendar or click Add to Google in the widget. A browser window opens with your Google calendar, asking if you want to import the Calendar.

Exporting your All-in-One Event Calendar to other calendars

When viewing your Calendar page or widget, click Subscribe at the bottom. This will download an ICS file to your computer. However, it is your computer settings which will determine exactly what will happen next. You might see a window asking you which program you want to use to open the file.

If you have a program associated with ICS files already (such as iCal), it will open when you
click Subscribe. It will present a list of options for importing the events. Follow the instructions for your program on how to fully import the events. For example:

iCal: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iCal/3.0/en/9870.html

How to get your .ics feed from your All-in-One Calendar

Hover over the subscribe button and right click. Select “copy link address.” You can paste this link into your calendar where it asks for an .ics file.
