They're all just stylistic choices, with no difference in nuance of meaning.

The only context where "regular, repeat event" comes into play is when you say something like "The London train leaves at 8 o'clock" - if you don't specify any particular day, the implication is it does so every day (or at least, every week-day - it may leave at a different time, or not at all, on Saturday and/or Sunday).
