This plugin is very flexible, giving you a lot of options for displaying the events feed (and many choices of where to place it: sidebar widget, on a post or page using a shortcode, or just use the dedicated page it generates for the feed).

It's also painless to use—I'd have no qualms passing on a WordPress install with this plugin on to a non-technical person, if they're able to manage WordPress itself.

It was also very easy to customise the styling of the display to fit our theme/website design.
