If you’re looking for an excuse to extend the festive season, why not join Scots the world over as they mark the birth of their country’s most poet Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns?

Stone’s Aston Marina is offering a Burns’ Supper celebration with a twist onTuesday, 26th January. As part of the marina’s regular Masterclass evenings, revellers will not only get to enjoy a slap-up three-course Scottish meal but will learn the secret of making classic Scots dishes.

The evening will be led by Head Butcher Colin Nicholl who, as a proud Scot, will recite the traditional Selkirk Grace before demonstrating how Scottish delicacies haggis and lorne sausage are made. Guests are then invited to head to the bar to treat themselves to a wee dram of whisky before settling down to enjoy a delicious three course Scottish meal. The evening will close with a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne, arguably Burns’ most famous work.

Events Manager, Aishah Minister says:

“Burns’ Supper is a great excuse to get out and celebrate in January and, with our very own head butcher being a proud Scot we saw the opportunity to give the evening an extra dimension for foodies. Our masterclass evenings are always popular, but with the addition of the Burns’ night traditions and party atmosphere, we anticipate this one will be among the most popular to date!”

The Burns’ Night Masterclass will take place at the Marina, which is located just outside Stone, from 7pm – 10pm onTuesday, 26th January. Tickets are priced at £25.00 per person (or £20.00 for members of the food club, which is free to join) – to book call 01785 819 702. www.astonmarina.co.uk
