1. Opening Ball
Easily the biggest event of the week, the sold-out ball will host over one thousand students on Lower College Lawn next Friday. Convenor Tom Higginson promises marvellous music for the first black tie event of the year.
The St Andrews African Caribbean Society returns with their always-popular night of hip hop, rap and afrobeats. On Tuesday night, The Lizard Lounge will feature the tunes of DJ Yemster, who encourages guests to groove responsibility.
Blood shots are the selling point of the spookiest night of Week 3. Held Thursday at The Rule, House of Horror will make its first appearance since 2014 with an experience that promises to “transcend Halloween.”
Under the leadership of Taryn O’Connor, the Beacon Bar will finally have its time to shine this year. In keeping with its Gossip Girl roots, OMFG will give us a GG-inspired game of Assassins. Polaroid photos and a pre-mixed cocktail shall ensure an Instagram-worthy Tuesday night.
It’s a competition like no other. Students will beg and borrow their way across Europe, fighting to win the race to a hot meal and eternal glory. On Tuesday in Club 601, members of the committee will be outline the rules, costs and safety procedures involved in this annual charity event.
