With memories of the revelries and indulgences of Christmas beginning to ebb away, we’re thrilled to announce the ideal opportunity to put your recharged batteries through their paces, for it’s the return of that most traditional of feasts, an exceptional Burns Night dinner in the St. James’s Room.
We hope Members are as excited as we are to host what is unequivocally one of our favourite events of the year, complete with all the Burns Night flourishes and trimmings.
BURNS NIGHT DINNER 2023
The inaugural Burns supper took place in July 1801, when nine of Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns’ friends got together to mark the fifth anniversary of his death.
Regaling each other with performances of his work and a speech in his honour, the acquaintances also nourished themselves with whisky and a generous dinner which had haggis, naturally, at its centre. The merriments were such a success that they decided to reconvene six months later and do it all again on Burns’ birthday, thus starting this baked-in Scottish institution.
Join us in celebrating a man who throughout the ages has inspired not only creatives but people from all walks of life: Abraham Lincoln was a lifelong admirer; John Steinbeck’s novel ‘Of Mice and Men’ took its name from a line in a Burns poem; Bob Dylan declared his greatest inspiration was Burns’ ‘A Red, Red, Rose’, and in 2009 Burns became the first person to appear on a commemorative bottle of Coca-Cola…
Appropriately enough for a man who learned and taught French (although he also signed up for the Dumfries Volunteers due to the threat of French attack), a glass of Champagne will greet you on arrival, then our bagpiper and host Jock Wishart will light up proceedings with trademark Scottish joie de vivre.
Drams of whisky, the pomp of the piper and an exquisitely paired Burns Night menu will be at the heart of 67 Pall Mall’s celebration of the man behind Auld Lang Syne.
Burns Night Menu:
Smoked Scottish Salmon, Pickled Cucumber, Crispy Caper Berries
Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, Red Jus
Clootie Pudding, Whisky Ice Cream
Wines to accompany the menu and a dram of whisky to toast the haggis.
