FRIDAY 28TH JANUARY
After a few years’ absence, the Leander Burns Supper returns, delivered by a team of Scottish Club Members, led, once again, by Mike Haggerty.
The evening will celebrate the words, poems and songs of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national bard and the “bill o’ fare” will include a taste of haggis, neeps and tatties, as part of a four-course Scottish-themed and sourced meal.
During the evening, the haggis will be piped in and addressed; some of Burns’ most famous songs will be sung; and his words and poems will be celebrated in “The Immortal Memory”, including a recital of his masterpiece – “Tam o’ Shanter”.
All of this will be toasted with Scotland’s national drink (whisky, of course) or Scotland’s other national drink (Irn-Bru – made from girders!).
The team delivering the event includes Scots Quintin McKellar, Ron Paterson and Mike Haggerty, supported by Cornwall-connected Celtic cousin Robert Treharne Jones, while the Leander chefs will be cooking with their best Scottish accents.
And, of course, the evening will round off with a heart-felt “Auld Lang Syne”.
Tickets £55 a head and include a welcome drink
