Burns Night

Burns Night is a celebration of the life and poetry of the Scotsman Robert Burns, whom the Burns Road estate in Royston is named after.

Burns Suppers are a true Scottish spectacle. After a few speeches, an Address tae the Haggis is recited with the speaker plunging his knife into the haggis to open it end to end.

Then follows a feast of haggis, neeps & tatties; washed down with a liberal serving of whisky and wine.

The evening is rounded off with dessert, coffee and an Address to the Lassies and a Reply to the Laddies.

Scottish or not, why not host your own take of a Burns Supper this January? If nothing else, it’s an excuse to socialise with those closest to you, drink your favourite drinks and tuck into a delicious meal.
