Any excuse to drink whisky and stay out late on a school night…it must be Burn’s Night! There are a few celebrations happening in and around Birmingham, so I’ve collected together ones I’ve stumbled across *insert joke about drinking too much whisky here*
Burns Night Whisky & Poetry at the Library
Experts from Birmingham Whisky Club will guide you through a tasting of six drams of whisky, poetry will be presented by Birmingham Poet Laureate, Adrian Blackledge, and there will be a dinner of haggis, neeps and tatties (a vegetarian option is available). More details.
Burns Night at Moor Hall
If you’re north of the city and looking to celebrate Burns Night early, then Moor Hall hotel in Sutton Coldfield are doing a four course dinner and entertainment on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th January. Dress is lounge suit or kilt (it would be rude not to) and the evenings will include a traditional piper to escort the haggis and dancing to an authentic ceilidh band. Click here to book via email.
Burns Night at The Church
Celebrating Burns Night with a Soul Food Project twist, The Church will be serving three courses with live music, all in their unique style. Tickets are £15 a head for three courses with sharing plates and are available behind the bar or online from here.
Burns Night fundraiser for Solihull MS
Not too much details on this, other than a Facebook page but it’s for a good cause so I thought it was worth including. The event, which takes place at the Knowle Royal British Legion, will serve up haggis, neaps and tatties as well as entertainment in the form of a piper, mini quiz and games. More details are available at their Facebook event page.
