Burns Night

We get our 2024 programme of events off to our customary start with a Burns Night show. The ticket price includes haggis, neeps and tatties. The haggis will be accompanied by George Turnbull on the pipes and the haggis will be suitably addressed by Ian Laird. Everyone is welcome, nay encouraged, to sing or recite preferably Burns but not essential. Audience numbers are limited to 40 due to the catering involved especially the mashing of the glorious neep. Always a fun night.
