Bursting the Bubble: Anstruther

Our Bursting the Bubble articles thus far have taken us rather far afield from our small Scottish town. Even Edinburgh’s distance builds up if you require a bus to Leuchars, train, and tram to reach your location. Happily one can find a break from The Bubble even closer to home, with a range of options lying just a short...

Music in St Andrews: more than meets the ear?

One of my friends, who lives in Gannochy, told me recently that one of their favourite things about coming home from class is walking past Younger Hall and hearing the sounds of both individuals and ensembles practising. This, to me, symbolises the rich and diverse musical life at St Andrews. It would be easy to assume, considering the university...

Battle of the Bubble: FS and dont walk interview

The Saint: In your role as creative director, what have you done this year to elevate dont walk above other events? dont walk: I think that this year we’ve really put an emphasis on being a creative response. We realised the videos were getting the most views so that’s really where we put all of our focus. We used...

Label: ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’

St Andrews’ youngest fashion show is back with a bang this year, coming to town on the Friday 13 April with a new, fresh take on fashion that other shows simply don’t provide. Established in 2015 by St Andrews student Jo Boon, this is the first year that the show goes on without its founder, although she is still...

dont walk: a model interview

With The St Andrews Charity Fashion Show last week, this semesters fashion season is now in full swing. Yet, despite being a crucial part of the show it is often difficult to imagine what being one of the show’s models is actually like. Is it similar to modelling outside the university? How does it feel to walk the runway?...

FS 2018: a great show in need of change

It is now only a little over a year ago that I sat down, hungover fingers still shaking, to write the review for last year’s St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (FS). I commented then how the committee had, despite the disaster of postponing the event, come back to deliver an astounding show, and an incredible story. Weather reports warranted...

SAASUM Pop-Up Gallery Brings the Rising Continent to St Andrews

It’s funny how one of the most practiced rituals of any event is often the most difficult, the issue of transformation. We are lucky to live in a multinational town, full of students from across the globe. Yet, it is foolhardy to believe that Latin American flair or Germanic cultural depth can be derived from a set of coloured...

The Other Guys: Naughty, Nice, and Absolutely Brilliant

From traditional Christmas carols to silly songs about messing up Christmas songs and other shenanigans the Other Guys’ Naughty or Nice Concert was a fun filled event. The description of the event stated that “The Other Guys want to bring in the Christmas season with you. As the nights get longer and the days get colder, this group of...

St Andrews Green Film Festival Prepares to Educate and Delight Students

When questioned about whether visitors to St Andrews were there to see him Prince William replied "I hope I’m not a tourist attraction – I’m sure that they come here really because St Andrews is just amazing, beautiful place." And he’s right, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded not just by a historic town, but a site of incredible...

Bacchanalia: ‘Drunken Revelry and Ritual Madness’

On the 9th March Younger Hall will be host to the night of ‘drunken revelry and ritual madness’ that is Bacchanalia. But what exactly is Bacchanalia? I chatted to the committee to find out. ‘Bacchanalia isn’t a ball as such,’ says Peter Dorey, ‘which is what makes it so different. We’re trying to break down the ideas of what it...
