Burns Night Supper & Ceilidh
A traditional Burns night & Ceilidh with all the trimmings
Saturday, 17 January, 2015,
Huntsham Court Supper Clubs are all about a celebration of fine food, good company and culture. Following the success of our recent supper clubs we’re delighted to bring a spark of fun to a cold January night welcoming the essence of Scotland to the heart of Devon with a Robbie Burns Night Supper & Ceilidh celebrating poetry, prose, hearty food, fine drinks and good company – all finished with a whiskey lounge or ceilidh… depending on what you fancy. Huntsham Court transformed!
You may have be busy on Burn’s Night on 25th… but the week before we held a traditional banquet night of boisterous company, good poetry and your chance to get to grips with some real Scottish dancing (with a the whiskey lounge).
An amazing traditional band Lucy Lastic Band played reels, jigs and the guests didm;t disappoint in their zeal to join in and Strip the Willow. We also had an amazing bagpiper who lead the haggis processional and read the Ode to the Haggis and other excerpts form Burns poems.
Food & Drink
As well as having a suitably Scottish sounding name, McBaile have a reputation for providing delicious and beautiful food with serious style, so we are incredibly lucky that they will be catering our Burns banquet. They have such a glorious, traditional-but-with-a-twist menu planned we think you will find it tricky to decide exactly which starter, main course and pudding to opt for – better start having a think about it now…..
