Burns’ Day

As the Society no longer organises a Burns’ Supper in Paris, its members are now invited to Aubigny-sur-Nère – ‘the home of the Stuarts in exile’ – to join in the celebration of Burns’ Day, organised by the Twinning Committee. The event always takes place on the last Sunday in January, close to the bard’s birthday on January 25th.

A four-course Scottish-inspired lunch, complete with cock-a-leekie soup, haggis, neeps and tatties, is followed by a concert of traditional and modern Scottish music. A couple of hours of ceilidh dancing to live music round off a most enjoyable day.
