The veterans’ charity, Erskine, will celebrate the life and work of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns, with a Burn’s Supper and Ceilidh on Friday 25th January 2019 in the prestigious setting of Glasgow’s Sherbrooke Castle Hotel.

The Erskine Burns Supper will be hosted by the charismatic “Voice of Tynecastle” – Scott Wilson, and will feature an entertaining address to The Haggis, a Toast Tae The Lassies, their reply and an Immortal Memory which comprises a full performance of Tam o’ Shanter! A delicious four course meal will be followed by a ceilidh led by the energetic Scottish band ‘The Jiggers’.

Tickets are priced at £75 per person and include a drink on arrival, a four course meal with half bottle of wine, and entertainment courtesy of the band and live DJ set. And if you want to make a night of it why not book into one of the Sherbrooke Castle Hotel’s fabulously luxurious rooms.

Wing Commander Ian Cumming MBE, Erskine’s Chief Executive said: “It is a little known fact that beyond being a national icon, poet and songsmith, Rabbie Burns was a veteran too – serving as a Private in the Royal Dumfries Volunteers! Had Erskine only been formed by the time Burns took ill, he could have lived in comfort and dignity in a nationally iconic veterans’ charity! We hope he would have approved of our celebrations which will become an annual event in the Erskine fundraising calendar.”
