Burns Night celebrations

Burns Night celebrations return to Aylsham

A little slice of Scotland will be coming to Aylsham on Saturday 24 January when Cittaslow Aylsham and Slow Food Aylsham present their annual Burns Night Supper. Now in its 4th year, the Supper, to be held in the Town Hall, will cater for up to 90 guests with a traditional Scottish menu.

Haggis is, of course, the principal ingredient of Burns Night celebrations and this will be accompanied by the equally traditional Neeps and Tatties. The wonderful concoction of raspberries, oats and cream, with a hint of whisky, which together make that Scottish delight Cranachan, will round off the meal while a ‘wee dram’ will be available for the Toasts. There will also be a licensed bar.

Recognising that not everyone can be a fan of traditional Scots cuisine, the organisers will be providing cottage pie, including a vegetarian option, as an alternative to the Haggis.

Helping the evening along will be The Address to the Haggis, the address to The Immortal Memory and the Toast to the Lassies, with appropriate Scottish music all the while.

Tickets for the Supper, which will start at 7.30 for 8.00pm, cost just £15 and are available from Barnwells Newsagents, Salad Days and the Town Council office in the Town Hall – phone 01263 733 354.
