Each year Newport and Usk Lions Club hold a Burns Night Supper.  We rotate around different venues however the structure of the evening follows the traditional Burns night running order.  Lion Kenny Redmond (Scottish Heritage) makes sure we follow the correct order.

Our guests are ‘piped’ in by a solo bagpipe player, Matthew Bartlett.

The Burns supper opens with the Selkirk Grace followed by the piping in of the Haggis.  The address to the Haggis is given by Lion Kenny, followed by the toast to the Haggis by the whole gathering.

We all sit down and eat a traditional meal of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties with Whiskey gravy.  We follow the meal with Scottish poems and reflections.  We have Celtic Dancers, Disco, and entertainer – all in our effort to raise funds for the Charities supported by the Lions Clubs.
