Burns' Night
Every year in January, Scots celebrate the birthday of our national bard, Robert Burns, with an evening of music, song and poetry, preceded by a traditional Scottish meal, including haggis. Our Burns’ Night is a relaxed, informal evening with traditional speeches but also with an emphasis on music, entertainment and dancing for all.
