Join Hackney Cycling Campaign at our annual fundraising Burns Night supper and ceilidh. Burns Night is always a lot of fun and an opportunity for London Cycling Campaign members, supporters and friends to meet each other and have a good time in the dark days of winter.
Doors open at 6.30pm, with beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks available at the bar. At 7pm, the traditional fare of haggis, neeps, tatties and whisky is served. Vegetarians and vegans are welcomed and well catered for. Recitations and party pieces will accompany supper. (If you’d like to give us a bit of Burns poetry, or if you can play a tune or sing a song with a more or less Scottish theme, you’re very welcome to do so).
After supper, at around 8.30pm, Scottish country dancing will be led by the fabulous Muckers whose caller will walk you through the steps, so no experience is necessary!
You can also try your luck in our Burns Night raffle for a chance to win some great prizes donated by local businesses and individuals. Proceeds from the raffle will be split between deserving cycling-related causes.
The dancing will continue until 11ish.
Tickets in advance only. No sales on the door, sorry!
Secure, covered cycle parking provided.
We very much look forward to welcoming you once again to toast with us the immortal memory of Robert Burns.
