Review: Bacchanalia 2019

At the beautiful venue of Younger Hall on 1st March, Bacchanalia presented some of the best music that St. Andrews has to offer, as well as crafting the social aspect of the event around a plethora of eclectic activities. Suggested by the committee to be “like a house party where guests can wear black tie,” I was initially worried...

Review: Ambassador’s Ball Launch

  At £3.50 for entry to event run by students for a subject I don't even do, going to the launch for the Ambassador's Ball when I should have been doing work seemed like the perfect plan for a Thursday night.   A little background - the Ambassador's Ball is organised by the School of International Relations, with some help with...

DRAFP Ball 2019: boring or ball-er?

When one has to review events, one always encounters the same problem: it is impossible to describe it in a completely antiseptic, objective way. Whilst I could have had a normal night out, the next person could have had the best night of their lives (I am of course exaggerating; but it’s always best to keep things interesting), as...

VS mixing up the music scene

When you’re planning for a big night out in the bubble, admittedly your venue options are limited. But for music fans, a new project from third-year students Sagar Sharma and Dominic Reynolds, VS Music, looks to add a breath of fresh air into your events calendar.   Originating from a love for Hip Hop music and socials revolving around their...

The surreal in the everyday: CATWALK 2019

After three successful years, the fashion show season continues with the return of Catwalk 2019. This year, the sell-out event is co-directed by Amy Sutlieff and Letitia O’Neill. The theme is Perception, coming from the surreal in the everyday life.   “We wanted to incorporate the fantastical into the everyday,” Ms. Sutlieff said.   Ms. O'Neill is currently an art history...

Bacchanalia promises a unique experience in its third year

Showcasing the best of arts in St Andrews, it’s time for Bacchanalia, returning for its third year.  When asked if anything would be different about this year’s event, Louise Cameron, on behalf of the committee, commented, “This year Bacchanalia is back to its traditional roots of being focused on a Greek theme. We have some big names in our performers this...

Review: Ideas 2019 with Lord Jonathan Evans

For those of you who don’t know, the Carnegie Club is the student-run organisation that aims to promote the values represented by their namesake, Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish-American philanthropist and businessman who served as Rector of St Andrews from 1901-1907. The club’s motto is “Learn, Earn, Return” and part of adhering to these values is engaging in meaningful discourse...

Gin Society Makes Its Debut in St Andrews’ Social Scene

In an article written before Christmas, Toby Lowenstein, one half of the brothers masterminding The St Andrews Gin Society, stated that their aim was to host events that delivered everything promised to students in advertisement for a price that wasn't eye-watering. As Toby says, their events would be "as exciting, detailed, immersive and professional in real life as ...

Review: Sitara Launch

I was very excited to get invited to review the Sitara Launch for The Saint. I was more than ready to speak my truth to the power of the St Andrean fashion show, and cut the social élite of the student body down to size. Yes: notebook and pen in hand, I was looking forward to exposing the snooty...

Preview: DONT WALK 2019

Established in 2001, DONT WALK has become an infamous player on the St Andrews’ events stage. With a large, devoted team and a good reputation, the event this year promises to be pretty special. DONT WALK seems to be in touch with a more experimental and dark artistic vision, which Creative Director Theodora Chia highlights is entirely intentional. She says,...
