Sunday, Jan. 27th marks the 16th annual celebration of Robert Burns Night at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich. Robert Burns’ Nights are celebrated all over the world – “Wherever there are Scots” – as a way to honor all things Scottish and keep tradition alive.
The event also is meant to celebrate the life and work of Scotland’s greatest poet Robert Burns on the anniversary of his birth in 1759. Before his death at the age of 37, Burns had written close to 600 poems and songs. One of his better-known works is “Auld Lang Syne.”
Back by popular demand, the Webster clan from the NH School of Scottish Arts – Lezlie Webster, daughter Marielle and son Campbell will be providing much of the evening’s entertainment. They are joined by well known Tamworth resident and British Isles storyteller Marion Posner, who will share some entertaining insights into the Burns Night tradition.
Join us for a fun evening of verse, songs, piping and Highland dancing and a delectable Scottish dinner put on by the talented Corner House culinary team. And….of course, the traditional Haggis is part of the feast!
The festivities begin at 5:30 pm. Highland dress or not. For more information and reservations contact the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich, NH at 284-6219 or online at firstname.lastname@example.org
