Chasing Ice

Walking into the warmth of the School 3 Lecture Theatre on Monday evening, I was faced with a motley amalgamation of people, perhaps the most heterogeneous group I had seen since arriving in St. Andrews. Students of all years and subjects filled the seats, as well as older residents of St. Andrews; I found an empty place next to...

UDS Debate – This House Has No Faith in Her Majesty’s Government

Last Thursday saw what had promised to be the Union Debating Society’s biggest and best debate of the year. As one of the most relevant, thought-provoking and controversial titles this year, the foundations had certainly been laid for some heated and fiery political discussion. Indeed, featuring an impressive line-up of politicians, political hacks and journalists, over 150 people attending...

DONT WALK 2013

While DONT WALK and ‘invite only’ are never far from the same sentence, the close-knit atmosphere and surroundings of Kinkell Byre’s beautiful brickwork manages to create a really special type of event. Although it’s almost impossible not to compare FS and DW, it really is vital to see St Andrews fashion’s more select show as an entirely different beast. Yes...

St Andrews Foreign Affairs Conference – Nationalism in the New Era

It was a fitting venue for a conference on Scottish Nationalism: Parliament Hall, where the Scottish Parliament convened during the plague in Edinburgh from 1645-1646.  Four speakers—all preeminent scholars of nationalism, and one of constitutional law—came to a well organized event by the St Andrews Foreign Affairs Society. On the roster: Professor Michael Keating, from the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh;...

Voice Festival

Every year, the Voice Festival gets bigger and better, and last night we were not disappointed. (Nor were we disappointed in the Saint's coverage of it - it appeared that nearly all the section eds were in attendance!) Younger Hall had apparently sold out, and extra tickets had to be released. Queues to get in stretched nearly down to Sallies....

Big Top Ball

So I spent my afternoon clowning around with two of the guys organising Big Top Ball as they explained how they had been juggling all their duties in the run up to ticket sales. I'm not lion when I say it sounds like they've been having a ball with it! (Okay, I'll stop with the awful puns now.) Ed Coombe...

DRAFP Ball

This was going to be the highlight of my weekend, it really was. I wanted so badly to enjoy this ball, but it was a mess. Admittedly, I went with high expectations, but these seemed to be justified - a good venue, decent ticket price and inventive theme. We had nine o'clock wristbands, and duly turned up at quarter past...

Feast of the Crusaders

Shire Logo
Seeing as the Feast of the Crusaders is coming up next week, I thought I'd catch up with Mateusz Lackowski from the Shire of Caer Caledon to find out what it's all about... Q - What is the Shire of Caer Caledon all about and what does the society do in general? A - The Shire of Caer Caledon is an independent shire, researching and re-enacting...

Weekend round-up

Friday kicks off what looks to be a hectic weekend of balls, concerts and general Bubble merriment, so here's where we'll be heading to make the most of it... The guys over at the G&S Soc have been promoting their next opera, "The Gondoliers". Ticket sales have started, G&S hoodies have been donned, profile pictures have been changed and a...

St Andrews Media Conference 2013

This week, the Carnegie Club of St Andrews brought together a panel of four media experts for the St Andrews Media Conference 2013: The Future of Media in a Digital Age.  The discussion was extremely interesting and informative for those interested in the media industry. The Carnegie club was established in 2012, with an aim to provide an open platform...
