On the Rocks – Student Arts Festival

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 17.29.49“On The Rocks” is an entirely student-run arts festival incorporating art, photography, film, theatre, dance, fashion, music and comedy.

The first On The Rocks took place in 2009, when a group of students decided that the separate annual film and theatre festivals should be combined to create one bigger, better event. This event was designed to showcase not only the best of drama and filmmaking in St Andrews, but furthermore to provide a platform to demonstrate the creativity and talent of artists, photographers, dancers, musicians and comedians. The initiative attracted the attention of several influential actors and actresses, with Sean Connery, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Siobhan Redmond, Crispin Bonham Carter, Joanna Lumley and Simon Pegg signing up as festival patrons.

The festival has grown over the years to become the largest student-run arts festival in Scotland hosting over 40 events annually.
