Burns Baby Burns at Kellogg College

College News News

Kellogg College will hold their annual Burns Night Ceilidh on Friday 21st January.

The evening will begin with Burns’ famous “address to the haggis” and a light buffet, followed by a night of Scottish line dancing and a bar open until midnight.

Kilts aren’t obligatory but are said to be “welcomed if you have the legs.”

MCR President Harriet MacMillan said: “As a Scot myself, I’ve grown up on Ceilidhs and always loved them as a way to get together and to mix with new people. I was at last year’s Ceilidh and it was really fantastic.”

Another Kellogg student George Taylor said: “[While] I didn’t go last year and have no previous Ceilidh experience; I am most looking forward to Haggis!”

Burns Night honours the life and work of Robert Burns and Scottish culture in general. It is annually celebrated on or around Burns’ birthday on 25th January and traditionally commemorates him with haggis, feasting, toasts, and poetry.
