Caledonian Society to hold first Burns night since 2020
An organisation dedicated to Scottish culture will host its first Burns Supper since 2020 next week.
The Caledonian Society of Bermuda has held the event, named after Scottish poet Robert “Rabbie” Burns, every January since 1937, but it was put on hold for the last two years due to the Covid-19 pademic.
All funds raised during the dinner will go towards the organisation’s $5,000 annual education award, given to a Bermudian university student studying in Scotland.
Paralympian Jessica Lewis was among those awarded funds in the past.
The society did not give the award in 2021, but instead donated the money to the feeding programme at Christ Church in Warwick.
This year’s event, which will feature whiskey tasting and Scottish dancers, will be held on January 28, at the Mariner’s Club.
Tickets are $130 and can be purchased by contacting the society’s secretary Ian Hind at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 334 9627.
