Join in and celebrate the life of Robert Burns with the Naggy Burn Ulster Scots Society which will be hosting its Annual Burns Supper in the No 1 Club, Narrow Gauge Road, Larne at 7.30pm on Saturday, January 21.

Willie McPhearson, Past President of the Belfast Burns Association will address the Haggis which will be piped in by Aaron Houston of Ballyboley Pipe Band.

Tom Beckett will deliver The Immortal Memory followed by the Toast to the Lassies by John Blair, President of the Belfast Burns Association.

The lady well capable of replying on behalf of the Lassies is Ann Morrison-Smyth better known as presenter of the BBC 2 Ulster-Scots programme, Santer.

This has the makings of a terrific night out where a full traditional Burns three-course supper of vegetable soup, haggis, sausages, and ‘tatties and neeps’ will be followed by tea and coffee and shortbread.

World Champion dancers, the Jordan sisters, will give a dance demonstration and Bracken, who have enjoyed a very successful tour of the United States, will provide music for dancing.

For further details or to purchase a ticket priced at £12.50 and includes a wee dram to toast the haggis, telephone: 028 2827 4608 or 07968 164633 before January 16.
