Another Fantastic Online Burns Night Supper

Last week, 17 OIs joined together online to celebrate Burns Night, a Scottish tradition celebrated on January 25th. It was created to commemorate poet Robert Burns, who was born on that date in 1759. Burns, known as the 'National Poet of Scotland,' was voted the greatest Scot by the Scottish public in 2009.

To honour his contribution to Scottish culture, a Burns Supper takes place, which features readings of his poetry throughout the meal such as, Auld Lang Syne.

We would like to thank everyone who attend the evening. We hope you enjoyed reminiscing about your time at Ipswich and learned some valuable insights to the Scottish tradition that is Burns Night. We also hope you enjoyed the variety of food available in your Burns Night hamper containing smoked salmon tartlets, beef and haggis pasty, smoked chicken breast and raspberry cranachan.

We'd like to extend yet another thank you to Tim Passmore (OI 1966-77) for hosting the event. William Coe (OI 1976-87) for deliveries and Clare Lock (OI 1993-95), who designed the event booklets, which were jam-packed with quizzes and games, as well as a wealth of information on Burns Night. Our thanks as always to the Development Office who helped organise the evening.
