The annual Britsburgh Burns night supper is rather splendid event which usually takes place at the quintessentially British Hartwood Acres Mansion. This year we can't be there in person but we nevertheless can continue the tradition and still have a blast...! 

 

 

 

 

Imagine the scene... The haunting bagpipes welcoming you in from the cold. Whisky tasting to warm you up. The address to the haggis ritual. The feast, the music, the dancing and laughter. What a great Scottish night out!

 

Bid on the silent action prizes; Prizes for various activities to get you out of your seats available during the evening.

 

Given the virtual nature of the event we have shortened the evening to 2.5 hrs and reduced the price to $60 per person. Ticket price includes a fabulous Scottish meal with haggis and whisky tasting delivered to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, toasts to the lassies and laddies, the Bagpipes and entertainment. Enjoy your own fine wines or beer at home. This price covers our costs only and thus is amazing value for money. Please consider making an additional donation.

 

An entertainment only (i.e not taking part in the meal or tasting) ticket costs $40 per household.
