Browns Burns Supper
What is "Burns Night"?
A celebration of the life and works of Robert Burns and a good excuse for a party!
Who was Robert Burns?
Burns was a poet and songwriter, born in village of Alloway in Scotland on 25th January 1759 and is considered the National Poet of Scotland
What happens on a Burns night?
Friends get together for a dinner of "Haggis, Neaps and Tatties" and poetry.
What about the poetry?
The main poem for the night will be "The address to the Haggis", read when the haggis is brought to the table.
"Address to the Haggis"?
This Burns' poem, in archaic dialect, honours the magnificent meal, and the reader actually slices open the haggis during the Poem.
The poem ends with the line "Gie her a Haggis" at which time all the other Haggis should be sliced open. Feel free to applaud your reader at this point before slicing!
There will be other poems on the table if anyone wishes to have a go at the Scottish accent which trust me will bring lots of giggles.........
The meal will include a canapé with complimentary whisky, starter, main course of traditional haggis, mashed turnip & potato with whisky gravy & served a complimentary glass of highland park, desert & cheese & oatcakes.
Donations for meal 40euros to be paid in cash
Wine is sold by bottle or glass & extra whisky sold per glass
