Top 10 Burns Night celebrations in London

21st January, 2016 by Annie Hayes

Burns Baby Burns at St John at Hackney Church


Hosted by Scottish comedian, Phil Kay, the event promises that “giant haggis will be piped, fire danced, drams raised, sporrans polished, lassies toasted, dosies do’ed, willow’s stripped and homage paid” in a momentous celebration of Rabbie Burns. There’ll be a three-course Burns supper, where live pipers will ‘pipe in’ the haggis, poetry recitals, dram toasting at the purpose-built whisky bar, and a ceilidh long into the night, led by the Ceilidh Liberation Front band. Traditional Scottish attire is encouraged, with “underpants optional”.

Address: St John at Hackney Church, Lower Clapton Road, E5 0PD
