Not Just An(other) Ball: How The Other Guys lit up the ‘St Andrean Skies’

On Friday 13th October at Lower College Hall, approximately 150 individuals united in their love for three things: black tie, balls, and a cappella. These principles are embodied by ten young men, each in possession of above average singing skills and adequate dance abilities. Those men are the Other Guys, and they successfully organised a ball.

Madrigal Group Autumn Concert

Renowned choral composer John Rutter once said “choral music is not one of life’s frills. It’s something that goes to the very heart of our humanity, our sense of community and our souls.” Even in this small Scottish town, good choral music, the like of which Rutter might be describing, is hardly difficult to find, with numerous concerts being...

Consent: Time to be a Family

“I’m doing you a favour” says the man to the bouncer, throwing ice on the floor and stomping on it. “I think it’s time you left”, comes the reply, and the student is pulled away, screaming about how the tracks were ‘too fire’ and the ice was to cool the dancefloor down.

Opening Ball: Kate Kennedy Club stuns returner and Fresher alike

The Kate Kennedy Charity Opening Ball signified another sensational start to the year. Ostentatious as ever, this year’s ball exceeded all expectations, and was host to a number of tipsy shenanigans from start to finish. Preceded by a month of chatter and hype, freshers were eagerly anticipating their first ball—an unofficial rite of passage for every St Andrean, considering how...

Lumsden Women Score a Win for St Andrews

I always thought reviewing would take me to some interesting places and St Andrews has left me far from disappointed, offering everything from drag shows to wine fairs. And once again, sitting at the Lumsden Winning Women Conference in Parliament hall, I found myself a veteran of all boys’ school, suddenly in a slightly different environment. Or at least so...

Sitara: Hazey night proves a success

Sitara, the Asian-fusion fashion show, opened with their first event of the year in Mammacita’s St Andrews on Thursday night. The restaurant was littered with decoration sourced from India and the Asian continent, creating a colourful and vibrant theme for the evening. As a sold-out event, it was always bound to be busy. The party was a very slow start...
