Burns Night


Meeting on 18/01/2016


Burns Supper

Monday 18th January 2016 7:30 for 8:00


Join us at The Inn on The Park, Deanland, to enjoy convivial company and celebrate the life and times of Robbie Burns.  Turn up with a touch of Tartan, or if you are able embrace the whole of the Scottish theme with Kilts, Sporrans, Shawls or whatever you can.  We will be entertained throughout the evening as the Haggis is Piped in, the traditional toast is given in an unconventional way and music, singing and perhaps even a little dancing enhance the evening.

We already have “Offers” (or press ganged individuals) to deliver the traditional “Selkirk Grace” and the “Immortal Memory” but still seek someone to give the “Toast To the Lassies”, and another to provide the “Reply From the Lassies”. If you have not done it before the internet will provide all the guidance you need – or email me at You will have fun researching your bit and undoubtedly enjoy delivering a piece of history, and if anyone has a “Lost Manuscript Fragment” they will be greatly revered!

Warmest Regards, Neville
