Me at the Shika Ball, Assembly Rooms, 1992

May 1992
Me at the Shika Ball, Assembly Rooms, 1992

About this memory

I was in my first year at Edinburgh University as a history undergraduate when this shot was taken.
I had never been to a formal ball before and so this was the first ever occasion that I hired a tuxedo!
The Assembly Rooms was the venue for the Shika Ball – and by the end of the evening most people were the worse for wear!
Don’t ask me who the girl is!!
