What Is On The Rocks?

A look into the largest student run arts festival in the UK.

Maybe you’ve recently been bombarded by Facebook posts promoting On The Rocks. Perhaps you acted in a show during the festival last year, or maybe the only thing you think of when you hear “On The Rocks” is how you like your whiskey. Whatever your understanding may be, this article hopes to shed light one some aspects of the festival you may be unaware of.

On The Rocks is the largest student-run arts festival in the UK and happens to take place in our lovely St Andrews bubble. The annual festival offers an array of artistic events, letting students and St Andrews residents define what “art” means to them – whether that be a photo exhibition or smashing crockery into pieces in order to make a sculpture. From comedy to food and fashion, there is something for everyone. This year will be On The Rocks’ ninth year running, and will offer ten days of exciting events from 13th March to 9th April.

The Festival garners immense support from the community. Last year Jannetta’s Gelateria even offered their own On The Rocks ice cream flavour. Other sponsors included beloved St Andrews businesses like Spoiled Hairdressing, Blackhorn, Balaka, Kirk Wynd Kilt Hire, Eden Mill and the Students’ Association. The Festival’s patrons include notable names such as Dame Judi Dench, Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Sean Connery, Joanna Lumley, Crispin Bonham-Carter, Simon Pegg, Siobhan Redmond, and Andy Serkis.

Each year offers an eclectic spread of events. Some of the most popular shows from last year included George Orwell’s Animal Farm and The Just So Society’s production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Animal Farm was put on at Balgove Larder and offered dinner along with the sold-out show. Hedwig cast a different actor each night, offering three completely different interpretations of the same show.

For those looking for a more casual representation of art, Music is Love teamed up with On The Rocks for Music Cafés last year. The relaxed atmosphere in the Old Union Café allowed for lovely music in a very calm environment. In addition to this, the Festival hosted an Indian Independent Film Week for those interested in films depicting themes of politics, women’s rights and LGBT issues. These various events prove that art can take place in multiple forms and in various venues.

The Festival is successful not only because it draws a huge crowd but because of the events that it supports. Without the events, the Festival would not be possible. If you have any creative ideas, however big or small, that you think would make a great contribution to On The Rocks, you still have time to apply.

  2. PBN sites
    We shall generate a network of PBN sites!

    Advantages of our PBN network:

    We carry out everything so GOOGLE does not comprehend THAT THIS IS A self-owned blog network!!!

    1- We purchase domain names from various registrars

    2- The leading site is hosted on a VPS server (Virtual Private Server is fast hosting)

    3- The remaining sites are on distinct hostings

    4- We allocate a separate Google ID to each site with confirmation in Google Search Console.

    5- We develop websites on WordPress, we don’t use plugins with the help of which Trojans penetrate and through which pages on your websites are created.

    6- We don’t duplicate templates and employ only distinct text and pictures

    We don’t work with website design; the client, if wanted, can then edit the websites to suit his wishes

    로드스탁과 레버리지 스탁: 투자의 새로운 영역

    로드스탁을 통해 제공하는 레버리지 방식의 스탁은 주식 시장의 투자의 한 방식으로, 큰 수익률을 목표로 하는 투자자들에게 매혹적인 옵션입니다. 레버리지를 이용하는 이 전략은 투자자들이 자신의 투자금을 넘어서는 금액을 투자할 수 있도록 함으로써, 증권 시장에서 훨씬 큰 작용을 행사할 수 있는 방법을 공급합니다.

    레버리지 스탁의 원리
    레버리지 방식의 스탁은 일반적으로 투자금을 대여하여 투자하는 방식입니다. 사례를 들어, 100만 원의 자금으로 1,000만 원 상당의 주식을 사들일 수 있는데, 이는 투자자가 기본적인 자본보다 훨씬 더 많은 증권을 구매하여, 주식 가격이 상승할 경우 해당하는 더 큰 수익을 획득할 수 있게 해줍니다. 그러나, 증권 값이 내려갈 경우에는 그 손실 또한 크게 될 수 있으므로, 레버리지 사용을 사용할 때는 신중해야 합니다.

    투자 전략과 레버리지 사용
    레버리지는 특히 성장 잠재력이 상당한 회사에 적용할 때 도움이 됩니다. 이러한 사업체에 상당한 비중으로 투자하면, 성공할 경우 막대한 수입을 획득할 수 있지만, 반대 경우의 경우 상당한 리스크도 짊어져야 합니다. 따라서, 투자자들은 자신의 리스크 관리 능력과 장터 분석을 통해 통해, 어떤 기업에 얼마만큼의 투자금을 적용할지 결정해야 합니다.

    레버리지의 이점과 위험 요소
    레버리지 스탁은 높은 이익을 약속하지만, 그만큼 높은 위험성 수반합니다. 증권 장의 변동성은 예상이 곤란하기 때문에, 레버리지 사용을 사용할 때는 늘 시장 추세를 정밀하게 주시하고, 피해를 최소화하기 위해 수 있는 계획을 구성해야 합니다.

    최종적으로: 조심스러운 고르기가 필수입니다
    로드스탁에서 제공된 레버리지 방식의 스탁은 막강한 투자 수단이며, 적절히 활용하면 상당한 이익을 가져다줄 수 있습니다. 하지만 상당한 리스크도 신경 써야 하며, 투자 결정이 충분한 사실과 세심한 판단 후에 실시되어야 합니다. 투자자 본인의 재정적 상태, 위험 수용 능력, 그리고 장터 상황을 반영한 조화로운 투자 전략이 핵심입니다.
