This image shows the bar for the very first Charity May Ball held at Kinkell in 2003. There have been many more since then in Kinkell Byre and, with the addition of Marquees and Fair Ground rides, this event has a capacity for close to 2000. Here’s what university news network The Tab said of the May Ball in 2016;
“…extravagant… an incredible evening of food, dancing, and rides from dusk till the wee hours of morning. While the exhaustion of May Dip earlier that morning plagued most students, guests took to the dance floors and bars with an unmatched energy and excitement to celebrate their final weeks in St Andrews for the year.
VIP and Standard guests were seen pouring out of taxis and buses to fill Kinkell to capacity from 8pm onwards. Greeted by an indoor champagne reception and live music, the bars and dance floors soon flooded with people seeking out photographers and drinks alike as the party began.”
