Mermaids Christmas Ball enthrals guests with a Fairy Tale of New York

It may not be Christmas in New York but it certainly is in St Andrews, with the annual Mermaids Christmas Ball at Kinkell Byre bringing a close to large events this Semester. One of the largest and most exclusive events on the St Andrean calendar, Christmas ball is famed for long ticket queues and selling out in minutes. Hell,...

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. Such an image is more than a...

Day-drinking with Luvians

I’m all for any excuse for day drinking, and so Luvians 20th Anniversary wine fair seemed like the perfect event for me to attend. And with over 200 wines, beers, spirits and ciders to try day drunk was certainly a state I achieved. Each vendor was given their own table and on it had a selection of up to...

The Saint sat down with past and present Catwalk directors about their hopes for the 2018 campaign and fashion show. Catwalk 2017 was a sell out event headlining RAG week and raising over ten thousand pounds for charity.

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...
