Amport (and Local Parishes) Burns Night
Christmas will soon be here, and New Year hard on its heels. If you think there is nothing more to celebrate once you have ripped the cellophane from your new calendar and opened it to reveal ‘January’, you may be interested to know that in 2017 we’re going to be celebrating Robert Burns’ birthday in Quarley Village Hall on Saturday 21st January.
The format will be traditional but light-hearted, just as Burns himself would have wanted. 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. Wine and soft drinks on the table, and whisky for ‘toasts’ (a bit like speeches, but light-hearted and brief) are 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 pm for a prompt 7:30pm start. It’s a packed programme, finishing at 11:30pm. Tickets cost £23 each, with any proceeds going to local charities. For more information, please go to www.birdsweb.co.uk/burns/ or call Gillian (01264 889463) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
