Beast from the East causes events chaos

It is well known in the minds of many students what happened on that fateful night last year, one that left gown-clad guests and fashion fanatics left, quite literally, out in the cold. Yet, those who do remember (I struggle) what happened when FS was cancelled in 2017 will put forth a tapestry of debauchery enough to make any...

dont walk triumphs

I sometimes wonder if I will ever be an adult. At twenty-one people insist that I’ve left the peculiar world of childhood and adolescence behind. After all, I can join the army, get married, and can even quench my thirst in the United States with a Smirnoff Ice should the mood take me. Besides the prevalence of alcopops that...

UBUNTU 2018: ‘A Cultural Masterpiece’

On the Saturday 10 February 2018 the St Andrews Afro Caribbean Society hosted a cultural masterpiece of a showcase on the (somewhat) famed 601 stage. A mishmash of dance, fashion and a beautiful narrative story of African legends the night was a resounding success and despite it being something I had never heard of before I’m now determined to attend...

DRAFP Ball earns infamous reputation

Where to start with “The Infamous DRAFP Ball”? How about the most obvious change from previous years: the name of the event. Why is this ball, out of all the hall balls infamous? Scott McNicol, coordinator of the event this year, explained the rebranding. In an interview before the ball he said that he wanted to make this event unique...

Bursting the Bubble: Anstruther

Our Bursting the Bubble articles thus far have taken us rather far afield from our small Scottish town. Even Edinburgh’s distance builds up if you require a bus to Leuchars, train, and tram to reach your location. Happily one can find a break from The Bubble even closer to home, with a range of options lying just a short...

Music in St Andrews: more than meets the ear?

One of my friends, who lives in Gannochy, told me recently that one of their favourite things about coming home from class is walking past Younger Hall and hearing the sounds of both individuals and ensembles practising. This, to me, symbolises the rich and diverse musical life at St Andrews. It would be easy to assume, considering the university...

Battle of the Bubble: FS and dont walk interview

The Saint: In your role as creative director, what have you done this year to elevate dont walk above other events? dont walk: I think that this year we’ve really put an emphasis on being a creative response. We realised the videos were getting the most views so that’s really where we put all of our focus. We used...

Label: ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’

St Andrews’ youngest fashion show is back with a bang this year, coming to town on the Friday 13 April with a new, fresh take on fashion that other shows simply don’t provide. Established in 2015 by St Andrews student Jo Boon, this is the first year that the show goes on without its founder, although she is still...

dont walk: a model interview

With The St Andrews Charity Fashion Show last week, this semesters fashion season is now in full swing. Yet, despite being a crucial part of the show it is often difficult to imagine what being one of the show’s models is actually like. Is it similar to modelling outside the university? How does it feel to walk the runway?...

FS 2018: a great show in need of change

It is now only a little over a year ago that I sat down, hungover fingers still shaking, to write the review for last year’s St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (FS). I commented then how the committee had, despite the disaster of postponing the event, come back to deliver an astounding show, and an incredible story. Weather reports warranted...
