Join us for a magical and memorable winter’s evening!
…with Capital Communicators
Burns Night is observed every year on January 25, and marks the birthday and celebrates the life and works of the 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns. 2013 is the 254th anniversary of the poet’s birth. It is an institution of Scottish life and typically includes poetry recitation, bagpipe music, singing, whisky drinking, and a dinner featuring none other than haggis.
My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.
This poem was written by Burns after his third and final tour of the Highlands in 1787 and is about Robert Burns leaving his home, the Highlands. He looks back on his life to remember all of the good times he had there, without saying anything about where he was at the time being.
As one of the Toastmasters’ clubs in Edinburgh, Capital Communicators is proud to host a Burns Supper that upholds Scottish tradition and features public speaking in a more social environment.
Your evening begins at 8 o’clock on Burns Night at Porto & Fi Deli Bistro Cafe in Newhaven (47 Newhaven Main Street EH6 4NQ), when we Pipe In and Address the Haggis. Continue in true Scots style with a traditional three-course meal plus wine, not forgetting the Neeps and Tatties! Cash bar available.
The price of this special Supper is £26.00 per person
