Showcasing the best of arts in St Andrews, it’s time for Bacchanalia, returning for its third year. When asked if anything would be different about this year’s event, Louise Cameron, on behalf of the committee, commented,
“This year Bacchanalia is back to its traditional roots of being
focused on a Greek theme. We have some big names in our performers this year, including some old favourites such as The Other Guys, but also new, exciting acts like BPM.”
A lot of work goes into making Bacchanalia a great night. The committee consists of 10 people, but many dedicated volunteers put a lot of effort in to making the night unforgettable.
“I think in terms of putting on the event, you also have to consider all the people who perform who are ultimately a huge part in making the night successful and we are so appreciative of them and their talents. The event is a complete fundraiser so we appreciate every person that contributes, whether that be from buying a ticket or performing on the night,” Louise explained.
What do you have to look forward to? Louise explained to me that the vibe of Bacchanalia is like a house party where guests can wear black tie, or to accommodate the Greek twist in the theme, a toga. She added that the committee encourages attendees to feel as free in the dress code as possible, and that extravagance is encouraged.
“I think the most special thing on the night is the atmosphere, it’s a very welcoming environment where everyone just wants to have fun and enjoy the incredible music we have to offer and explore all the additional bizarre things we have around the venue.”
At £16, Bacchanalia is more affordable than some other St Andrews events and offers life drawing, glitter art and many other weird and wonderful things, guaranteeing a unique experience.
