This superb Burns Supper is our keynote event of the year.  It has all the ingredients you would expect - a fine meal including the traditional haggis, recitations, songs, piping - and we round the evening off with two hours of ceilidh dancing to a great band.  The Immortal Memory will be given by Professor David Duff.
