Introducing Laggan’s inaugural family Burns Supper on the 27th January 2024 at GG’s Yard!

At £40pp, the event will be chaired by local MSP Finlay Carson and will feature an impressive lineup of guest speakers, a traditional Burns supper meal, entertainment and ceilidh dancing.

The event is sponsored by Turcan Connell and Johnston Carmichael and is perfect for all family members as the Burns Supper is suitable from the age of 10 years plus.

Guests will be greeted and piped into the venue by Harry Campbell followed by delicious canapés by the GG’s Yard kitchen team. Once seated, guests will be welcomed by Laggan’s Chair for the evening, local MSP Finlay Carson. Rodger Callendar will ‘Address the Haggis’ and guests will indulge in a traditional two course Burns supper again, prepared by the GG’s Yard team.

Evening proceedings will continue with ‘The Immortal Memory’ by Kate Kaye (retired President of Dumfries Ladies Burns Club), followed by the ‘Toast to the Lassies’ by Grierson Dunlop (Turcan Connell) and culminating in the ‘Reply to the Toast to the Lassies’ by Jennifer Stewart (Johnston Carmichael). Entertainment will be provided between speeches, by Colin Mair from Dumfries and multi award winning youngsters Rose and Seth Byres from Lockerbie. The evening will finish with dancing to Bruce McKenzie’s Shore Road Ceilidh Band.
