Durham Scouts: Burns Night 2012

Piper at Burns Night
Burns Night will be slightly different in 2012, the evening will start at 7.00pm with Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, we will then have two live bands playing, the first a ceilidh band playing traditional Scottish folk tunes with a Caller leading the dancing. 

They will be followed by a Covers Band playing 80's, 90's & 00's songs by Scottish Groups. 

To add to the fun we will have a bar selling Real Ales & Ciders as well as bottled drinks.

We also have a limited amount of beds in the House, these are £10 each and include a full Scottish breakfast on the Sunday morning at 10am.
