Burns Night 2020

January 18, 2020 @ 6:45 pm - 11:55 pm

€10.00 – €39.50

We’ll be celebrating our annual Burns Night on Saturday, 18th January 2019.

Only 100 tickets. So book early to avoid disappointment.

Our night is a celebration of the birth of the most famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Best known for writing the words to Auld Lang Syne, sung at New Year around the world, he was a prodigious poet from the 18th Century, writing in lowland Scots on everything from the devil to his love life.

There will be a traditional 3-course dinner, including haggis, tatties & neeps (potatoes and turnip). In the tradition of Burns nights everywhere, the haggis will be piped in, and then greeted with the Burns poem “Address to a Haggis”. Please advise when booking whether you require a vegetarian haggis option.

Price is €39.50 which includes a drop of whiskey and champagne to celebrate the start of the New Year as the British Society is 100 years old on the 20th November 2020.

Throughout the evening, there will Scottish country dancing, led by Margaret Lambourne Margaret is an expert teacher and all dances are taught up front, so absolutely no experience is necessary in advance.

Get a Head Start With Scottish Dancing Classes

If you want to get a head start to be expert in time for the Ceilidh, then Margaret runs Scottish Dancing classes every Thursday during term time (contact margaret.lambourne@ziggo.nl)

Musical entertainment is provided by The McVities (John and Annika Cameron-Webb and a fiddler).

Last year was fast and furious, and the Brits were outnumbered by other nationalities, proving that you don’t need to be British to appreciate a Burns night. So, why not give it a go?

Look forward to seeing you there!
