You can use the DateTime.ParseExact method and specify your format.

"h:mm tt - d MMM yy"

using System;

public class DTP 
{
	public static void Main() 
	{
		string s = "8:46 AM - 30 Dec 11";
		DateTime d = DateTime.ParseExact(s, "h:mm tt - d MMM yy", null);
		System.Console.WriteLine(d);
	}
}

Open in new window


The various format options are detailed here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8kb3ddd4.aspx
