The level of shenanigans was extremely high at the Don’t Walk launch party. The Rocca is one of the best venues I’ve had the pleasure of playing in a while. It’s just a shame they wouldn’t let us blast the music. Our faithful photographers were there to catch all the action.

This play is one of Shakespeare’s most well known pieces, and this weekend it will be performed in St Andrews by some of our finest Thespians! Unlike the versions we have seen, this performance is taking the play back to its Elizabethan glory! It will have an all male cast (strictly no females allowed on stage!), with live music, period costume, sword fights, and lots of Shakespearean drama to take you back to fair Verona! The play will be held in Younger Hall, and for the true Globe theatre feel the audience will have the option of “groundling” or “balcony” seats.  There will also be festive refreshments to help you escape the books for a few hours!It looks like it is going to be a really good show – buy your tickets at:

Raisin. by Indie

Filed under: Announcements, Events, General, Raisin Weekend

Reading week has passed and hopefully everyone is well rested and revitalised for the rest of the term,that is what people think…but really reading week recharges the batteries for what everyone knows is going to be a manic weekend of parties, dress-up and lots of foam!

Being a third year this year I am extra excited for Raisin, as it is a chance to have a party with my own academic kids and those of my friends too! Everyone seems to be coming up with strategies and planning wild activities that are only socially acceptable for one weekend a year, in one tiny town! This had me wondering how many people know what the tradition of Raisin actually is…so I thought I’d give a brief summery behind the history of the upcoming weekend using the internet as my (not so) trusty source.

The tradition started off as a day where first year students would give a pound of raisins to their academic parents as a thank you for guiding them through the first few weeks of their university life. This was meant to come with a receipt from the parents acknowledging that they would follow through with this gift – failure to do so saw freshers being soaked in the fountain (on  Market St.)…but that has now turned into the foam fight. And the pound of raisins that was meant to be given at a “tea party” has been swapped for something a little more fun…

I wonder how this change in the next few hundred years!

Happy Raisin from Saintandre.ws!

So what is SaintAndre.ws live you might ask? Well, the short answer is that its our solution to one of our biggest problems. You see, the problem with writing reviews of events in this town is that its one way media. You guys can’t get involved. We write a review of an event and you werent there, then there isn’t really much to be done except hope to go next year. SaintAndre.ws live is our solution to that. SaintAndre.ws live is our photo/video live blog. We’re going to be bringing you LIVE photos from all of the biggest events in St Andrews from now on.

But how can you see it though? Well, we have a solution for that as well. We’re on posterous, tumblr, twitter and facebook. So choose your favorite microblogging/social networking service and tune in!
