Burns Night has been and gone and I would like to say a big thank you to those that attended.
It seems the haggis , tatties, and neeps was enjoyed by all.
Chris Davidson on the bagpipes was fantastic. ( the rendition of waltzing matilda was great)
Rod Burns ( yes thats his real name) read the ode to the haggis
The folks from Symbian on the top table did the tradition proud.
more theme nights to come so if you missed out, theres plenty more coming up.
