Charity Burns Supper & Ceilidh 2023

Join us on Friday 27 January 2023 for a traditional Burns Supper and Cèilidh!

Starting at 18:30, the event will include a three course meal, speeches, poetry, songs and dancing to commemorate the life and works of Robert Burns, Scotland’s most celebrated poet.

What happens at a Burns Supper?

We will offer a traditional Burns Supper three course meal of:

  • Starter: Cock-a-leekie soup OR potato and leek soup (Ve)
  • Main course: Haggis OR vegan haggis with neeps, tatties and (optional) whisky cream sauce
  • Dessert: Cranachan (V) or vegan trifle (Ve)

This includes a welcome drink. A bar with alcoholic and soft drinks will be available for purchase
throughout the evening.

The meal is interspersed with light-hearted speeches and entertainment, including

  • The Address to the Haggis, accompanied by a Piper
  • The Immortal Memory
  • The Toast to the Lassies and Reply
  • Songs or poems by Robert Burns.

The Supper is followed by a Cèilidh. A Cèilidh (‘kay-leeh’) is a Scottish folk dance, with mostly energetic group or paired dances, led by a live band and caller.

The caller will guide you through the steps for the dances – so beginners are welcome.

This will start in the church shortly after the meal ends, with the event finishing at 11:00pm.


This event has sold out.

Who are we fundraising for?

We will be raising money for a new heating system at the church, and for food initiatives run by our neighbours at The Crannie.
