Autumn has fallen upon us and soon the ghosts and ghouls will come out for Halloween. St Andrews students can join in on the fun by attending House of Horror’s second annual charity gala on Thursday October 30 at Kinkell Byre. Unlike most other galas, there is no need for formal attire… but fancy dress is definitely encouraged! Following the smashing success of last year’s sold-out gala, this Halloween will be bigger, better, and more horrible than ever. The co-directors and committee have worked out any and all issues from last year, and will transform Kinkell into your worst nightmare filled with your favorite Halloween horrors. This House of Horror will also include unexpected surprises and new sponsors, so this night is certainly not to be missed! Due to popular demand, Staley Sharples will be DJing again and pumping the party up for when the clock hits midnight and Halloween begins.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that the gala will be supporting The Elephant Family, an organization committed to protecting Asian elephants and their habitat. The co-presidents of the event, Caitlin Craig and Nathalie Seidl, chose the Elephant Family because “animal rights is often left out from St Andrews charity campaigns. Both of us have worked with elephants in the past and we feel that it is important to bring light the realities of the abuse of the Asian elephant and its habitat.”
Ticket sales begin at 13A Hope Street from 1-5 pm on October 9th and will also be available online. Tickets are £30, and last year sold out on the first day so arrive early to ensure you have a spot at the most frighteningly fun night of the year! Want more info?
