We have been invited to join Club Vivanova and the British Association of Monaco (BAM) for a celebration marking the life and work and the anniversary of the birth of Robbie Burns in 1759. The first Burns supper was held in July 1801 when nine of Burns’ close friends got together to mark the fifth anniversary of their friend’s death.
Celebrating Burns Night
In traditional style, the event will begin with the Selkirk Grace. Guests will then enjoy a hearty feast with a starter of Scottish smoked salmon. the MacSween Haggis will be piped in, with a performance of Address to a Haggis, to be served with neeps and tatties, and toasted with drams of Aberfeldy 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
They will host a raffle during the evening to raise funds for BAM's charitable causes, followed by a Chocolate Gateaux dessert, after which the Immortal Memory by Burns will be recited followed by a Toast to the Lassies, then a Reply to the Toast to the Lassies, before the final Burns recital is performed. To end this special night, everyone standing will join in to Auld Lang Syne.
A wine aperitif will be served from 7pm, with dinner and presentations starting at 8pm; international white and red wines will be served throughout the meal, with mineral waters and finishing with coffee and Scottish shortcake. Dress code is black tie / kilt and a touch of tartan for ladies (optional).
