Preview: Charity Oktoberfest 2019

Download the duolingo and brush off the traditional Bavarian dress because it is that time of year again: Oktoberfest is coming to St Andrews. Save another snow storm (last year’s event  was cancelled due to the so-called “Beast from the East”) this year’s St Andrews Charity Oktoberfest will take place on Saturday 9 March. I sat down with Hendrick Walter...

DRAFP Ball: A Preview

Previously deemed the best hall ball, anticipation is high approaching the DRAFP Ball. Located on Lower College Lawn in a Luxury Marquee, with 2,000 guests expected, this is definitely an event that you do not want to miss. With its theme this year of “Atlantis”, expect to be immersed in the underwater kingdom, lined with Ancient Greek columns and...

St Andrews Polo Club Reintroduces Beach Chukkas

Among the many great things about St Andrews are the beaches – perfect for surfing, cleansing ourselves of sins (academic or otherwise) and this year, put on by the Polo Team, Beach Chukkas.

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.

In the Gateway building, groups of friends sat in a circle, multiple browsers open to the Union website, fingers poised...

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...
