The Palladian Cup
St Andrew's were last crowned champions of the Palladian Cup in 2009. Over the last eight years this is the fifth time the College has been triumphant in the competition.
The Palladian Cup is an annual opportunity for musicians, vocalists and thespians to represent the College and showcase their talent. The highly entertaining event, taking place over several nights is also a time for the host College's residents to demonstrate their production and organisational skills, giving opportunities for many people to get involved.
In 2009 Dramsoc, the College's Drama Society, put on the Restoration comedy The Country Wife by William Wycherley. Directed by Harriet Archibald and produced by Sean Ohlendorf, the show was a huge success with performances taking place in the JCR courtyard.
