Burns Night 2020 at 19h, Saturday 1st February, Martignas-sur-Jalle

It’s that time when we celebrate the life of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns and the BBC always celebrates in the best possible style!  Some would say he was the greatest Scottish poet ever to have lived, and measured by the number of parties held around the world every year to celebrate his anniversary, that could be true. However, it may also have something to do with the whisky, which always flows freely and helps to drown the ‘Haggis Beasty’!  Our Burns Night will have the traditional menu of smoked salmon, haggis, neeps, tatties and fruit tart together with wine and whisky at the inclusive price of 20€ for adults and 10€ for children up to 10 years of age. Entertainment will include the pipes, some Burns recitation and the traditional ‘Address to the Haggis’ (together with its stabbing!) followed by optional dancing for all.
