BURNS NIGHT SUPPER BOOKING FORM

About Burns Night

Our Burns supper, has been celebrated at the New Inn for over 30 years and is an institution of Scottish life, 3 evenings of celebration of the life and works of the National bard. Our evening starts with piping in the guests followed by the Chairman’s welcome and the selkirk grace, a short but important prayer read to usher in the meal.

 

Piping in the Haggis. Guests should normally stand to welcome the dinner’s star attraction, delivered on a silver platter by a procession comprising the chef, the piper and the person who will address the Haggis. A whisky bearer should arrive to ensure the toasts are well lubricated. During the procession guests clap in time to the music, until the Haggis reaches its destination table, the music stops, every one is seated in anticipation of the address to the Haggis.

 

The honoured reader now seizes their moment of glory by offering a fluent and entertaining rendition of ‘to a Haggis’. His knife poised at the ready (his knife see rustic labour digit). He cuts the casing making sure to spill out some of the tasty gore within (trenching its gushing entrails). The recital ends with the reader raising the Haggis in triumph during the final line (gie her a haggis) which the guests greet with rapturous applause and the audience now join in the toast to the Haggis and it’s time to serve the main course.

 

The entertainment. Our piper will perform Burns songs, the immortal memory. The speaker will conclude with a heart felt toast to the immortal memory of Robert Burns followed by our Piper to entertain and toast to the Lassies, vote of thanks, and closure of the proceedings by inviting our guests to belt out a rousing rendition of AULD LANG SYNE.
