Review: St Andrews’ First Burlesque Show

Post exam diet and with the passing of the holiday season, it seems fitting to finally review one of St Andrews’ more controversial events after such a wholesome few weeks. I am referring to the town’s very first burlesque show, held at Hotel du Vin earlier this December. In my previous interview with Brandy Montmartre, the show’s leading lady,...

Review: All Cheshire Cat Smiles for Christmas Ball 2018

When Mermaids announced the ticket release time to be on the 14th of November at 1:30 pm, it certainly felt like most of St Andrews mobilised to secure the elusive tickets to the university’s last ball of the semester. In the Gateway building, groups of friends sat in a circle, multiple browsers open to the Union website, fingers poised...

Brandy Montmartre speaks to The Saint about her upcoming burlesque show, the first of its kind in St Andrews.

Dominion: Not for the faint of heart (or stomach)

The Saint's Events editor, Alexandra Sicot-Koontz reviews the Sustainable Development Society's screening of Dominion, a gruelling indictment of the meat industry.

Preview: Boxing Charity Home Show

For the first time in five years, Olympic-style amateur boxing is back in St. Andrews! Unlike the ‘Fight Club’ event, the ‘Boxing Club Charity Home Show,’ which is on Saturday 17 November, is organized by the university’s boxing club and is backed by the university itself. Will Murdock (social representative) and Blaise Cooper (club president) are confident that this...

Review: DONT WALK V Launch

For many of you first years reading this, you’ll have no idea what DON’T WALK is (unless you read my handy guide to the year in The Saint’s Freshers Magazine). For those who don’t know, it’s one of the most impressive, most exclusive and most decadent of fashion shows that happen every year in second semester. Like many of the...

Szentek’s Third Year Bash – The Story So Far

It’s finally back again – my favorite Kinkell Byre-based event in St Andrews. Szentek has returned for its third year in a row to the famed St Andrews venue and promises to get people dancing any way they can. On Thursday 15 November, the somewhat rave-themed event celebrates yet another successful year which will inevitably be sold out when the night comes. With...

Learning about Port – It’s not just an old man’s drink

Port is a very niche drink – while I’d had it a few times in the past at dinners to me it always seemed like a dad drink. Something my dad and his business friends would drink together and be all fancy and mature. It doesn’t strike me as a very accessible drink, particularly to students. After all what...

Croquet Give it a Go – a hit through the hoop (I think)

A cold but sunny Friday afternoon. The Cabbage Patch park on Hope Street. A group of slightly cold but very tweed covered students huddled around a couple of bottles of lookalike Pimms. The scene is set. I didn’t really have high expectations when going to the croquet society's first social event of the semester. Let's face it – croquet is...

Till Death Do Them Part: A Night to Forget?

As one of their first big events of the term, the Fine Food and Dining society of St Andrews hosted a dinner party at the beautiful Hotel Du Vin. Throughout the ambitious event held over a period of three days, actors would improvise around a core story each night and act out a murder mystery. The premise of the night...
