2021 Burns Night notice to St. Andrew’s members

Last year’s Burn’s night was our last in-person event. Because of the pandemic we’ve kept in touch virtually – and we’ve put together this year’s Burns dinner as a virtual event on YouTube.

The link is given below – and we’ll post the program with timings on the website.

This link will remain up for e few weeks.


We’ll have the usual piping in and address to the haggis, recorded from previous celebrations.
During the meal there’ll be a twenty minute slideshow of Burns country, set to Burns songs.
The Immortal Memory, the centerpiece of the evening, comes to us from the heart of Burns country in Scotland, thanks to Sarah Jean Thompson’s relatives.
After the toasts we have some great entertainment from friends and family both sides of the Ocean: with Highland dancing, Burns songs, Scottish fiddling, and the recitation of Tam o’ Shanter

With YouTube you can skip forward or rewind to enjoy specific parts of the evening as you wish.
The presentation finishes with Auld Lang Syne sung by Whisky Kiss, accompanied by your Board.

We hope you’re all staying safe and well, and before long we can gather together again in person.

Please enjoy our 2021 Burns Night celebration
