What Will St Andrews’ Event Culture Look Like in September?

With no date in sight for the reopening of night clubs in the UK, and many societies already planning a number of online events for the first semester, it’s clear that events culture at St Andrews will be far from normal in the wake of social distancing regulations and ongoing COVID-19 fears. As students return to campus and freshers especially...

Fashion Shows: The Bottom Line

Fashion shows are a staple of the St Andrews social and event calendar. With five shows taking place in 2020 - Don't Walk, CATWALK, Sitara, FS, and VS, St Andrews leads most universities in quantity. Despite being popular events, not all opinions on university fashion shows - or fashion shows at that - are positive. This article will explore...

A New Age for Events

On a typical Friday night in St Andrews, popular venues such as the Union and the Vic should be absolutely rammed with students dancing (and drinking) away the cares of their week. However, in the age of social distancing and the prolonged closure of venues across the UK, students are continuing to miss out on their favourite events, which...

Femme artists and musicians unite

Last Friday night my friends and I braved the storm and headed out to College Street for the first Copper Coil event this semester, “Start Here.” There was a sense of obscurity to the event given that the Facebook page revealed little details about the location until a few hours prior. However, the important information was listed as the...

ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE

THE FASHION by Georgia Luckhurst 2020 marks the 19th year of DONT WALK, the largest privately-run student charity fashion show in the UK (and needless to say the only one to have featured a future Queen). In its 19 years of garnering mythos, from the spectre of the Duchess of Cambridge to featured designs by names as major as Anna Sui,...

Arcade

I was initially unsure about my motivations for wanting to buy a ticket for DRA Ball. I am no longer a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed fresher, spending an inordinate amount of money for an event because “I have to try everything once”, I do not live in DRA (nor do I know anyone who does) and I am not a DRA...

Streetwear x Hip Hop

VS had introduced the first ever Streetwear x Hip-Hop Charity Fashion Show to the St Andrews social scene this year, impressing all with the calibre of the event. This, however, should not have come as a surprise considering the reputation the collective has worked relentlessly to achieve since their beginnings in 2018. Having been to my fair share of...

Out of the depths of my happy heart

Out of the depths of my happy heart / wells a great tide of love and prayer / for this priceless treasure / that is confined to my lifelong keeping. / You cannot see its intangible waves as / they flow towards you, darling, but in / these lines you will hear, as it were, / the distant beating of...

Bodies Empowered

For a non-sporty St Andrews girl, I was intrigued to hear of an arts inspired event happening on a Wednesday night. When a friend asked if I was interested in the collaboration between Passport and Capture Collective my honest response was to ask who these organisations were! Nevertheless the promotional post link to the Giorgio Moroder remix of Eurythmics’...

A Night of Music for Australia

Although latest headlines about the Australia bushfire crisis suggest that most of the flames have now been contained, there is no reason to forget about what’s happened to our friends down under. “A Night of Music for Australia” was one of the UNAStA’s biweekly fundraising events to raise money and awareness “for a cause that are passionate”, the...
