I'm not sure if this is going to be easy/possible to do with out messing with the core files but.....
how would I go about changing the date descrition in the events archives page and event single page so the date is displayed as
17&18 August 2013, 10am to 4pm
instead of its current format which is
Takes place on August 17, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
and Takes place on August 18, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Thanks in advance
