Preview: North Haugh Ball

This weekend, something a bit more evil will hit the Spanish Gardens of St. Andrews. The North Haugh Ball, organised by an Powell and Agnes Blackadder Hall and Andrew Melville Hallhybrid committee, is set to feature a returning freshers' favourite, the Stickmen, and fashion icon, Gok Wan.   The theme - Diablo - is an interesting choice as we enter into...

Preview: Speakers Series

The Global Investment Group is excited to present the annual Speakers Series on Friday 12 April. The group has gathered six speakers from around the United Kingdom and beyond to come to St Andrews for a day of presentations ranging from Fintech & Artificial Intelligence to Investment Management & Business Development. One of the most exciting parts about the event...

Bursting the Bubble: Glasgow

LANY (pronounced Lay-nee) is not one of the world's biggest bands, but is definitely one to keep an eye on as their popularity grows and one that appears – to the slight irritation of my boyfriend who seems to listen to exclusively American rap and does not appreciate indie pop – regularly on my playlists. Consisting of three individuals...

Review: Gin Society Prohibition Dinner

Having attended The Gin Society's first event back in February, I was super excited to be able to go to their second and final event for the year, the Prohibition Dinner, which advertised a three-course meal, six gin and tonics and plentiful entertainment for £70 per ticket. I was, I have to admit, a little apprehensive about the theme. At...

Preview: UNICEF on Campus Symposium

On 15 April, students and locals of all genders, races and ages, will join together in St Andrew’s infamous 601 to engage in the UNICEF on Campus fifth annual symposium event. Through the stress and chaos of planning such an event, the UNICEF on Campus team managed to tell me their hopes for the event, and what this means...

Glitterball: The happiest night in St Andrews

Just over a year ago, the front page of The Saint’s website was hit with now-infamous breaking news: The annual Saints LGBT+ ball, Glitterball, had been cancelled two days before its scheduled date after part of its marquee was blown into the North Sea by the Beast from the East snowstorm. As an optimistic fresher who had purchased a ticket...

Luvians to put on Beer Fair

Anyone who has walked up Market Street or wanted to treat themselves to something a little more elegant than Tesco brand “zesty wine” (just say no) has noticed Luvians Bottleshop. For 22 years now Luvians has been hosting one of Scotland’s most successful annual wine fairs which is a firm fixture in the social calendar of the town, both...

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...
