Burns Night 2020
Saturday, January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Join us for our now-legendary Burns Night supper – a fabulous menu of Scots delights, lots of whisky, poetry, laughs and bagpipes.
The first Burns supper was held in July 1801 when nine of Burns’ close friends got together to mark the fifth anniversary of their friend’s death. Taking place at Burns Cottage in Alloway, the night included a tasty meal (haggis, of course), performances of Burns’ work and a speech in honour of the great Bard (now known as the Immortal Memory). The night was such a resounding success they decided to hold it again (this time in honour of Rabbie’s birthday), beginning the tradition we still enjoy to this day.
At the Geese and Fountain we’ve been holding a Burns Night every year since we opened, and it’s always a welcome excuse to roll out some classic malt whiskies and some very tasty Scottish inspired food. Poems, songs and laughter are the order of the night, and with our favourite piper, Mr Bill James, in attendance, we guarantee a good night will be had by all.
With a welcome by bagpipes from 7pm, please be seated by 7.20 for the Selkirk Grace.
