This is a very traditional evening, celebrating the famous Scottish poet Robbie Burns.
Following a drinks reception a Scottish piper will lead diners to their tables. They will be served a delicious and hearty meal starting with Mrs. Sutherland's scotch broth. followed by haggis, 'neeps and tatties', roast beef with vegetables and then on to sweets, cheeseboard and coffee and mints. Guests will also enjoy a whisky or port at the end of the meal.
There will be a traditional 'Address to the Haggis, chosen verses and of course a 'Toast to the Immortal Memory'.
It's a great traditional evening of celebration, fun and excellent food!
The SCA have been successful in the recent round of community funding. Below there is something that you could do to help. If you sign up to become Co-op members 5% of what you spend goes back to you and 1% goes to the selected community group. It costs £1 to become a member. The current round runs until April 2018.
With the money raised SCA will be buying a wide selection of children's outdoor games and activities with the intention of running events and providing opportunities for families and young people.
