We are now planning a Burns’ Supper and Dance for 2023! After a virtual Burns’ Night on Zoom in 2021 and cancelling our Burns’ celebration in 2022 it will be wonderful to mark the Bard’s birthday in the traditional manner.
Our Burns’ celebration is the high spot of our season. Ours is a traditional Burns’ Night with a piper, ceremonial Address to the Haggis, all the traditional speeches and toasts, and a splendid meal, followed by dancing – Scottish Country Dancing for those who know and simpler ceilidh dances for everyone to join in.
Our next Burns’ Supper & Dance will take place on Saturday 28th January 2023 at Worleston Village Hall, Main Road, CW5 6DN. This is a modern, well-equipped village hall with excellent facilities, plenty of parking and a sprung floor for dancing.
We shall be having a professionally-catered three-course supper with a choice of dishes. There is no bar at this venue, so please bring your own wine or other drinks to accompany the meal. We will provide squash and water and tea/coffee will be served.
This was the proposed Programme for 2022 – we have not yet prepared the programme for 2023, but this will give you an idea of what to expect. Click here for a cribsheet or here for a link to Strathspey Server (most dances have videos).
