St. Andrews - Kate Kennedy Procession

[an error occurred while processing this directive]On April 15th, 2000 - St. Andrews University students once again took to the streets of St. Andrews on foot, horseback, and carriage to raise money for charity. The procession is not only philanthropic, but colourful, witty, dramatic and educational.

and

screen saver.


Audio descriptions of each character are by David Joy, Golf Historian and honorary member of the Kate Kennedy Club. Each scene can be sent to a friend as an electronic post card, and some have associated video.

St. Andrew himself, leads the procession of characters from St. Andrews' past ranging from the holy and pious to muderous scoundrels. It's not always easy to tell which is which. Archbishop Sharp was dragged from his coach and stabbed to death in front of his poor daughter, Isabel. Innocent bystanders had their wallets "lightened" for Charity's sake :-)

 Videos include ...

The Three Pipers and St. Andrews Pipe Band

Archbishop Sharp being dragged from his coach and murdered

To celebrate the Spring, the procession ends with a daffodil covered coach carrying the Lady Katherine Kennedy ("Kate") and her uncle Bishop Kennedy to a public reception by local dignitaries.

We had a team covering this event to produce a multi-faceted multi-media account and a most colourful screensaver.
