The Friends of Scotland (Society) is proud to present traditional Scottish Event - the Burns Supper, which is to take place in Prague at the Vsebaracnicka Rychta, Trziste 23 (near U.S. Embassy) on January 23, 2009, from 7 p.m.. This is the very traditional event of its kind concerning that part of the ancient lands of Great Britain to be held in the Czech Republic. For more than 200 years, the Scots have celebrated the birth of their national poet, Robert Burns, in a traditional evening of food, music, poetry, song and of course good whisky. The event will follow the very traditional Burns Supper format, including the Haggis and other traditional Scottish food; and will end with a Scottish Ceilidh (dancing). It will be a lot of fun!
The CZK 300 ticket price includes a traditional Scottish dinner - Haggis, Neeps and Tatties - a dram of Scottish Single Malt Whisky and an evening jam-packed with entertainment featuring among others traditional Scottish ceilidh band of Shetland-born fiddler Alastair Edwards, the 1st Czech Pipes and Drums, traditional Scottish pipe band, Caledonian Club, traditional Scottish country dancing, etc.
The Friends of Scotland (Czech Republic) was formed in 2004 to bring Czechs and Scottish (or Scottish origin) together in a social setting that fosters the promotion of Scottish culture. Since its foundation, the non-profit organisation has grown rapidly to over seven hundred members. This will be the 5th annual Burns Night organised by the society.
The Friends of Scotland organises an ever-increasing range of activities throughout the year including the Burns Supper, the Highland Games Sychrov : the largest Highland Gathering outside Scotland in Europe http://www.skotskehry.cz, the 1st School of Piping, Keltovani v Luzne; charity festival of the Celtic Music, Vysehradske Keltovani ; festival of the Celtic Music, ceilidhs, whisky tastings, concerts and much more.
With all its activities, the Friends of Scotland aims to build on traditional foundations already laid down by other Scottish associations around the world. We hope you will be able to join us at the Vsebaracnicka Rychta, January 23, 2009. The tickets are available via e-mail : kilt@PROTECTED
