5. Introspect

On Tuesday 12 April, University students will be presenting an exhibition exploring mental health through art. The event will be held for free in Beacon Bar between 7:30 and 11:30 pm and will be a great opportunity to immerse oneself in both the beauty of student art and others’ perspectives on mental health, a topic that has been causing every-increasing talk within the University these past few months.

6. Label Fashion Show

As the newest and last show to enter this year’s fashion season, Label Fashion Show is being held Thursday 14 April in Club 601. With a central theme of acceptance, Label promises to be one of the most inclusive events to ever have graced the St Andrews social scene. Tickets are available online through the Facebook page for £25 for both the show and afterparty and only £5 for the afterparty alone.

7. Can’t Walk

As a kind of parody-spin-off of the university’s fashion season, the Men’s Football Club will be hosting its own version of a fashion show at Rascals bar on Thursday 14 April at 8:30 pm. If you are not attending Label, for only £2 entry this laid-back and light-hearted event might be the perfect event to attend as a change to your typical Thursday night.

8. Rugby 7s Afterparty

After last year’s success, the St Andrews 7s will once again culminate in the Rugby 7s Afterparty at Kinkell Byre, on Saturday 16 April. Though library ticket sales happened last week, there is still a chance to get a ticket at the tournament on the afternoon of the event at University Park.
