FS 2013

Here in the Fashion Kingdom of Fife (our grandiose, but more than apt full title), we once again saw our small town transformed into a massive fashion event on Saturday for the Charity Fashion Show: FS2013. Ushered in through the beautiful Sallie’s Quad, you lose absolutely all sense of being in a small town on the edge of Scotland - barring...

Itchy Feet

This past Tuesday night, Itchy Feet, the travelling 1950’s themed party, made its much-hyped return to The Union. It was a night of rock & roll and swing era songs to which you found yourself surprised at vaguely knowing the lyrics, rounding up a sizeable crowd of pretty excited and slightly sloshed students ready to twist themselves into stitches.

Mr St Andrews

Mr St Andrews was a roar-some event! And no, Mr McLion did not win. After a late start (wasn't it kind of them to wait for me to arrive!) the evening's announcers began a round of would you rather with the contestants, highlights of which included Mr LGBT's response of, "Well I don't like vaginas, so penises for fingers"...

A Chocolate Affair In association with RAG Week 2013 (sponsored by KPMG), the Baking Society and the Fine Chocolate Society are proud to present “A Chocolate Affair”.
