On Saturday 24th November, the team behind the largest student run arts festival in the UK, ‘On the Rocks’, will bring a taste of what the main ten day festival in April has to offer in a vibrant and varied ‘one day mini festival’.
The ‘On the Pebbles’ programme features collaborations with an array of different student societies and St Andrews organisations. It arose from an effort to utilise the OTR platform throughout the whole academic year to encourage creativity between unlikely groups and to produce new and interesting performances in alternative venues across St Andrews. The shows on offer range from ticketed to free and immersive ‘pop-up’ style events, such as the popular A Capella group ‘Bells’ delivering free performances in outdoor spaces around town. Other highlights include “Historytelling”: an exciting event in the Preservation Trust Museum, which brings together the Art History Society and Blind Mirth (Student Comedy Improvisation Group) to provide ‘unconventional, comedic and informative tours of the museum’.
The full programme of ten events taking place at various places around the town can be found on the OTR Facebook page, and tickets (designed as a suitable map of St Andrews) can be picked up at any of the ticketed events around town. It is important to note that due to the nature of the event, timings and venues are liable to change, therefore it is recommended that guests keep an eye on their Facebook page or ask at any of the box offices on the day.
‘On the Pebbles’ takes place on Saturday 24th November, 1-10pm, in various locations around St Andrews. More information can be found on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2226567724287472/
