Burns Night in Hitchin
What is Burns Night? I've never celebrated it and I have to admit that I've never tried haggis before either! Having had a look on google, Wikipedia has given me an insight and I realise how uneducated I am.
Robert Burns, born on 25th January 1759 in Scotland and regarded as Scotlands national poet - well known (and even I know this song) for Auld Lang Syne which many of us sing (if you can call it that) on New Years Eve. And apparently in 2009 was voted by the scots as the 'Greatest Scott'.
So Burns Night is celebrated by Scots and lots of non scottish people on 25th January by a meal of haggis and a wee dram of whisky (can't stand the stuff myself).
The Millstream pub in Cambridge Road Hitchin are celebrating all week serving classic scottish dishes throughout the week, and on Tuesday 25th January a 3 course meal for those of you who wish to celebrate the day in style (bookings only on 25th) Please contact them on 01462 759787 for further details.
