Burns Baby Burns: East London's Burns Supper, Spectacle + Ceilidh

London's wildest Burns supper and Ceilidh dance inferno

Following the phenomenal sell-out success of 2015, Burns Baby Burns returns bolder and yet more splendid for 2016 in celebration the late great bard Rabbie Burns. Join host Phil Kay in the resplendent glory of St. John's at Hackney church for a immersive night bedecked in tartan and tam o'shanters, where whisky and poetry flows and the rafters and floorboards are thumdersomely shaken, all in glorious celebration of world's third most statued man, Scotland's answer to the lord almighty, Robert Burns. Pre dinner sees the enormous balcony populated by face painting, poetry, tartan adornment and a multitude of toasts of fine scotch, followed by a three course sit down banquet on tables as far as the eye can see. The clearing of the deserts sees the Ceilidh Liberation Front take centre stage, for the wildest most joyful ceilidh south of South Lanarkshire. Giant haggis will be piped, fire danced, drams raised, sporrans polished, lassies toasted, dosies do'ed, willow's stripped and homage paid in the most fantastical of styles to Rabbie Burns. Bring your squeeze, bring your kilt, bring your granny, bring your dancing shoes, Burns Baby Burns invites you to celebrate Scotland's finest in some style, right in the heart of Hackney. Ticket includes: - three-course sit down meal served on china plates - a dram of whisky - Burns night spectacle rituals of poetry, reading and song - Ceilidh dancing into the night and a cuddle with Rabbie Over 18s only. Valid ID required. Doors open 6:30pm, supper starts at 7:30pm sharp. Regrettably latecomers may not be able to receive all three courses. Ceilidh only tickets include watching the spectacle from the balcony and enjoying the whisky bar before heading down for the post supper Ceilidh.
