The Christmas decorations are away and a new year has begun but if you think there’s nothing more to look forward to, there is more fun to be had at Quarley Village Hall on Saturday 21st January when it’s time to celebrate Robert Burns’ birthday.
The format will be traditional but light-hearted, just as Scotland’s bard would have wanted. A 2-course supper with haggis specially imported from Royal Deeside will be served.
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 hopefully everyone will be go home at the end of the evening with a smile on their face.
Doors open at 7pm for a prompt 7:30 start. It’s a packed programme, finishing at 11:30. Tickets cost £23 each, with any proceeds going to local causes. For more information, please go to www.birdsweb.co.uk/burns/ , call Gillian (01264 889463) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s not-for-profit but any excess we make will probably be passed on either to the Amport & Monxton Community Charity, the Village Hall or to the Black Swan pub fund so the more tickets we sell, the better the night will be and the more likely it will be that something goes back into the community!
