Robert Burns

Interested in trying out a truly authentic Burns Night? … then come and join us in January 26th 2023 for just that.
You’ll hear the sound of the pipes as kilts swirl and Scottish tartans come to the fore….. and you’ll never forget your first taste of haggis!
Also you can try a touch of easy Scottish Country dancing and hear a bit about Robert Burns. 

The 264th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s National Poet, Robert Burns, is being celebrated with a Dinner in authentic style.
We have planned a truly entertaining and remarkable night at the Society’s Scottish Hall and ALL are invited. Ticket price is £22. please see below.

We have organised this annual event for 116 years and really know how to celebrate Burns.

Many hotels offer a Burns Night which consists of a meal and possibly a piper but not much more. With us you get the whole Scottish package.
So come and let yourself be immersed in the traditions of a Burns Night and experience the flavour of Scotland for a few hours.
