Neu! Reekie!'s Not Quite A Burns Night Burns Night.jpg

Neu! Reekie!'s Burns Nights have made their mark on the Scottish Cultural scene these past eight years; each a swift sell-out; each a wild carousel of poetry, colour, visuals and music.

This one features: LIZ LOCHHEAD * MALCOLM MIDDLETON * THE BUM-CLOCKS * DJ BUTTZ * TOM MORGAN-JONES * KEVIN WILLIAMSON & MICHAEL PEDERSEN & more.

Ticket price includes: haggis/vegetarian haggis, tatties and sauces. That and a complimentary GLEN GRANT whisky / dram or two. Food is canteen style portions (not a three course dinner - just saying).
