If you’re unsure about addressing the haggis or toasting the lassies and you don’t know your kilts from your ceilidhs, you’re still sure of a warm welcome at the Lake Yard Burns Night on Saturday 25th January.
If there’s one thing the Scots know how to do is party and the perfect antidote to a cold, dark late January night is the annual Burns Supper. These evenings are warm, jovial and proud affairs, filled with fervent speech-giving, poetry recitals and plenty of food and drink. For many, the highlight of the evening comes with the arrival of the haggis as it is piped in to great ceremony. Scotland’s national dish takes centre stage as the words to one of Burns’ most well-known poems, Address to a Haggis, are ceremoniously recounted for all to hear.
So whether you’re an ardent and patriotic Scot or a timorous but curious Sassenach, you will be as equally welcome and made to feel part of the ceremony at this year’s Lake Yard Burns Night on Saturday 25th January. There will be drams aplenty (as well as Irn Bru for those persevering with Dry January) and a full Burns Night feast including haggis, neaps and tatties. Live entertainment will be provided including traditional bagpipes and traditional Scottish dancing.
