It’s a night for all those who feel their ‘heart’s in the Highlands’!

 

How do you throw a Burns Supper (officially)?

1)       To start – everyone gathers, the host says a few words, everyone sits and the Selkirk Grace is said.

2)       The meal – the starter is served, perhaps cock-a-leekie, the haggis is bagpiped in, the host performs Address to a Haggis, everyone toasts the haggis and the main meal is served, followed by dessert, often Cranachan.

3)       After the meal – the first Burns recital is performed, the Immortal Memory (the main tribute speech to Burns) is given, the second Burns recital is performed, then there’s a Toast to the Lassies, followed by a Reply to the Toast to the Lassies, before the final Burns recital is performed.

4)       To end the night – the host gives a vote of thanks, everyone stands and sings Auld Lang Syne, crossing their arms and joining hands at the line ‘And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!’.
