Taking place on 20 January at the Dalmahoy Hotel, Edinburgh, the meeting will provide all attendees with an update on the AVA’s current activities and future plans. Following this will be the celebration of the Scottish poet, Robert Burns who died in 1796, leaving behind a great collection of famous works.
No Burns Night can begin without a traditionally dressed Bagpiper to greet guests as they arrive. The piper will lead us in to dinner and will of course perform the Robert Burns poem, ‘The Address to the Haggis’. Live band The Scraggly Cats will provide the music entertainment, with a fusion of funky Ceilidh music, classic Scottish songs and pop anthems.
The Dalmahoy Hotel is just seven miles from Edinburgh’s city centre and boasts 300 years of history surrounded by 1,000 acres of parkland. With spectacular views as far as Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Bridges, it is a true celebration of Scottish heritage. The hotel offers two 18-hole golf courses, a beauty salon, two bars and restaurants, sports facilities and much more.
