Join us on the birthday of Robert Burns, 25th January to celebrate his life, works and Scottish culture! 

The drab of January can be done away with by booking tickets to our hearty evening, which will include;

-A traditional 3 course Scottish dinner

-Piping in of the haggis

-Scottish songs

-Recitals of Burns poetry

-A Ceilidh (traditional Scottish dancing) with live band for several hours (at least!).  

For those people who are interested in attending a Burns night, but aren't sure what a Ceilidh entails, a live band playing lively folk music accompanied by a Caller directs the dancers to the beat. The caller will set the dancers up in formations and then calls the moves, giving everyone a chance to have a go, regardless of dancing ability.

Kingsfolk will be our Ceilidh band for the night and you can listen to and watch an example of one of their previous events here to give you an idea of how a Ceilidh works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFsEu_kIN0Q

There will be a bar available during the evening and plenty of parking. Feel free to come in tartan, knitted socks and in kilts - the more Scottish the better! 

Early bird tickets are on sale now for just £30 per person book before the 31 December to take advantage, £35 there-after. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Who was Robert Burns? 

The 25th of January is the birth day of Poet and Political commentator Robert Burns (1759-1796) and in a typical Scottish fashion marks his birth (rather than the day of his death). Burns, born to farmers lived during the French Revolution, wrote with directness and sincerity around the themes opposing the monarchy and slavery, political reform and the rights of ordinary men, inequalities in the class system, Scottish heritage and of course the ‘bonnie lasses that caught his eye’. It was his ability to write so aptly in both Scottish and English with very little formal education that wowed society at the time. The extent of how far we regard Robert Burns as politically radical has been debated in contemporary times, but he is widely hailed as being at the forefront of Socialism and more liberal values through his poetry, songs and letters. From his pen flowed poetry celebrating Scottish rural life, tradition and spirit and thus is widely hailed as ‘the greatest Scot that ever lived’.
