Burns Night Dinner 2022

We are delighted to welcome back that most traditional of feasts to the St. James’s Room this January, in the form of a very special Burns Night dinner.

We hope Members will be as excited as we are to host once more one of our favourite events of the year, complete with all the Burns Night trimmings…

The very first Burns supper was held in July 1801, when nine of Robert Burns’ friends got together to mark the fifth anniversary of his death.

The night consisted of a hearty meal (haggis included), performances of his work and a speech in his honour. The event was such a success that they decided to do another on his birthday, 25th January, thus starting the tradition that is now an institution of Scottish life.

Join us in celebrating a man who still today inspires writers, musicians and artists around the world. In 2010, Astronaut Nick Patrick carried Burns’ poetry on his two-week mission to the International Space Station, to accompany him on his 5.7 million mile journey. When Bob Dylan was asked for his greatest creative inspiration, he named Burns’ 1794 song, “A Red, Red Rose” as the lyrics that have had the biggest effect on his life, and it is even said that ‘Thriller’ was inspired by the poem, “Tam O’Shanter”.

We will begin with a glass of champagne on arrival, where our bagpiper and host Jock Wishart will commence proceedings with trademark Scottish flair.

Drams of whiskey, the pomp of the piper and an exquisitely paired traditional Burns Night menu will feature in our celebration of this brilliant writer.

We hope to see you there…
