Burns Festival Celebration

It is a few years now since Emmanuel and Elmers End held a joint Burns Supper but plans are well advanced to hold a Burns Festival Celebration next year (the 260th anniversary of the Bard’s birth).

Although Robert Burns was born on 25th January (1759) our supper will be held at Emmanuel a few days before the actual anniversary on Saturday 19th January 2019.

Tickets for the celebrated Emmanuel & Elmers End Burns Supper will be on sale (from me) from 1st December. Tickets are priced £20 per person and the proceeds on the evening will be shared between “Young Minds” and “Brain Tumour Research.” Two charities dear to us at Emmanuel.

A delicious four course meal will be served and there will be the usual entertainment with piper, toasts and songs as well as Scottish dancing. I am grateful to Sue Beynon and the catering team for organising the food for this event.

Please buy your tickets as soon as you can as numbers are restricted by the size of the Richmond Hall.

“And deep this thought impressed my mind
through all his works abroad,
the heart benevolent and kind
the most resembles God.” (Robert Burns 1759-1796)
