Bath Comedy presents A Burns Supper with a Difference

Celebrate the birthday of the Bard of Ayrshire in traditional style with a twist!

Enjoy a fabulous three course supper featuring Cullen Skink, Haggis* Neeps and Tatties and delicious Cranachan.

All the trimmings are included: quality toasting whisky, tartan tableware, Irn Bru, Edinburgh rock, plus a reasonably priced pay bar.

Genial Master of Ceremonies: The inimitable Jacky McSween, host of Radio Carmunnockís 'Good Morning Glasgow - Hi Edinburgh!', and an evening's entertainment which includes the piping in of the haggis and star turns by virtuoso multi-instrumentalist John Sampson, former official musician to the Poet Laureate.

Featuring stars of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' and The Comedy Store Players including Andy Smart, Steve Steen and Stephen Frost, providing some Burns-related improv!

Rumour has it that by popular demand Mrs Aggie McFaggot may come out of retirement from the Foggy Dew Rest Home to render your favourite wee ditties on the piano forte if she can find her mittens.

Dress code: Tartan (optional).

Advance ticket purchase essential. £2 discount for Social Club members.

*Vegetarian option available.
