Amport (& local parishes) Burns Night

Christmas is coming, and New Year is hard on its heels.  If you think there is nothing more to celebrate once you have ripped the cellophane from your new calendar and turned it to ‘January’, you may be pleased to know that Robert Burns’ birthday is celebrated all over the world on Saturday 25th January. And in 2014 we’re going to be celebrating it in Quarley Village Hall.    

Following on from the Amport Burns Night in 2011, the format will be the same – traditional of course, but light-hearted.  A supper, including haggis specially imported from Royal Deeside, will be served with a dessert to follow.  (Unsure about haggis?  You might be pleasantly surprised; but that’s not all there is to eat.)  Wine, soft drinks, and whisky for ‘toasts’ (a bit like speeches, but light-hearted and short) is included in the ticket price.  Dancing to a live band with a caller follows the supper and toasts, and hopefully everyone will be go home at the end of the evening with a smile on their face.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for a prompt 7:30pm start (it’s a packed programme).  Tickets cost £18 each, with proceeds going to Amport charities.  For more information, please go to www.birdsweb.co.uk/burns/ or call Gillian (01264 889463) or email gillian.bird@virgin.net
