BROMSGROVE residents can get a taste of Scotland at the annual Burns Night Supper being held in aid of the district council chairman’s chosen charities.

The event, being hosted by Coun Caroline Spencer to celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns, will be held at the Parkside Suite, Bromsgrove town centre, at 8pm next Friday (January 29).

Haggis, neeps and tatties will be on the menu, there will be a piper in attendance and there will be a performance by the Hagley Scottish Dancing Group.

A tot of whisky (or orange juice) will also be on offer to ‘toast the haggis’ and, after it has been piped into the room and presented to everyone, a Burns poem will be read.

Coun Spencer said: “I’d like to invite everyone to come and join us to celebrate the wonderful Robbie Burns, and enjoy the traditional haggis, that ‘great chieftain of the pudding race’, together.”

Tickets, at £17.50 each, are available by emailing Sharon Chaplin at s.chaplin@bromsgroveandredditch.gov.uk or by calling her on 01527 881484.

Party bookings are welcome and proceeds, along with those raised through a raffle on the night, will go towards The Basement Project and Libby Mae’s Little Angels.

Those who go along should take their own drinks and glasses as there are no bar facilities available on the night.
