Jonathan Gibb previews CROSSWALK, organised by DONT WALK, an event that – it seems – will be unlike anything we’ve seen before in St Andrews. 




There’s nothing better than a new and fresh event taking place in the Bubble. If you’re looking for something completely different, CROSSWALK, brought to you by DONT WALK, may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

The concept of this event is genuinely very impressive and rather brave. Taking place between 2PM and 7PM on a Wednesday – of all days – definitely sets CROSSWALK apart from the start. Moreover, being able to enjoy classic fairground rides advertised as having the capacity to “propel you into new levels of exhilaration” is something that you can usually only hope for at May Ball, and that particular St Andrews social scene staple is always accompanied by extensive damage to one’s wallet and transpires sans the unlimited candy floss CROSSWALK promises.

All CROSSWALK tickets include entry into a raffle with a plethora of truly desirable prizes (…an overnight stay at The Old Course, anyone?) which, hopefully, softens and justifies the ticket price. Even more exciting is the new charity that the committee have chosen to support, The Robin Hood Foundation, which fights poverty in New York City. By supporting a charity very relevant to DONT WALK’s philosophy, guests can no doubt feel that they’re contributing to a good cause while having plenty of fun. On the subject of their chosen charity, the director of DONT WALK, Conor Fennessy, explained that: “…we are honored to be able to work with an organisation that so relentlessly tackles poverty and inequality. This is the start of a special year for DONT WALK and CROSSWALK will be a fitting opening”

Tickets for the event can be purchased on CROSSWALK’s newly designed website found here. For more information, please check out the event page on Facebook.
