Birthday Festival Dinner

at The Caledonian Club

We are delighted that Alan Beck, immediate Past President of The Robert Burns World Federation and also Past President of Greenock Burns Club (The Mother Club), with whom we are twinned, will be our principal speaker.  The event will also include all the usual ingredients of an excellent Burns Supper - a nice meal, with haggis piped in and adressed, toast To the Lassies and response, recitations and ceilidh dancing to live music with an expert caller.

Further details will be available soon, but please reserve the date.


Wreath laying and lunch

As is our custom, we shall meet in Victoria Embankment Gardens (near Embankment station) at 12:30 to celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns by laying a wreath at the magnificent statue of the great man.  We shall also have music from our piper and performances of some Burns poems and songs.

Aferwards, those of us who have the afternoon free will be piped through the streets to a nearby venue for a celebratory lunch.  If you would like to join us for the lunch please register your interest by emailing our Secretary (see Contact page) for further details, including price and how to book.
