Burns’ Night
Every year in January, Scots celebrate the birthday of our national bard, Robert Burns, with an evening of music, song and poetry, preceded by a traditional Scottish meal, including haggis. Our Burns’ Night is a relaxed, informal evening with traditional speeches but also with an emphasis on music, entertainment and dancing for all.

2019 - Full day event

The Twinning Committee of Aubigny-sur-Nère has once again invited the Caledonian Society of France to join in their annual Burns’ Day celebration on Sunday 27th January 2019.

Our group will travel by coach departing from the Esplanade des Invalides (outside the Métro exit) at 09h00 and returning to Paris at around 21h30.

The organisation of the event is as follows:

12h00   Aperitif

13h00  Scottish meal: cockie leekie soup, haggis, neeps and tatties, cheese and oat cakes, Scottish-inspired desert. (Wine extra)

15h30  Concert of Scottish music and songs with Joanne McIver (flute, penny whistle, bagpipes and vocals) and Christophe Saunière (harp and vocals)

16h30  Two hours of ceilidh dancing to live music


The price (transport + aperitif + lunch + concert + ceilidh) is € 50,00 for members of the Society and € 60,00 for non-members.

The last date for bookings is Monday 21st January 2019 at midday. As the number of places on the outing is limited, early booking is essential to avoid disappointment.
