Welcoming Your Guests on a Burns Night Celebration

Burns Night 2017Mark January 25 in your calendars since this is the special day when we commemorate the great poet named Robert Burns. He has made various works which are critically acclaimed and the main reasons why he was catapulted to mainstream fame. We celebrate his legacy on a special night full of various activities like eating a very delicious meal made of Haggis, toasting with your friends and family members, and admiring the great works of Robert Burns.

However, the Burns night cannot start without a proper introduction of guests. In order to know what you need for the guest welcoming, continue reading the article below. Robert Burns – Wikipedia : Biography – Robert Burns Tribute

The Venue

It all starts with the venue. Make sure that the venue you have chosen for the Burns supper is large enough to accommodate all of your guests. However, do not choose a very large venue that not even all of your guests will be able to occupy half of the space. On the other hand, do not choose a venue that would be too narrow. Have enough space for the stage and performance of the performers. Burns Night 2017 Recipes Traditional Recipes Drinks

Pipers

The tradition in a Burns supper welcoming activity is that pipers would play their bagpipes while the guests are entering the venue of celebration. Hire a band of pipers who can play amazing songs. If you do not have enough budget for that, then just ask for some people who can play the bagpipes and let them practice for some time.

Bagpipes

Of course, the pipers would not be able to play without bagpipes. If you have hired a band of pipers for the welcoming activity, then most likely these pipers would already have their own set of bagpipes. However, if you only ask some people to play, then go to some friends who can let you borrow some or rent from some musical shops.

Song

The pipers would of course play a specific song while welcoming the guests. Make sure to choose a song that would be very lively in welcoming so that your guests would feel the initial hype. However, if you want a sophisticated and chic entrance of guests, then go for a sophisticated song as well. Better yet, choose a song that was written by Robert Burns himself to make the celebration much more commemorative. When is Burns Night 2017 in London Edinburgh Glasgow Scotland

Your Speech

For the last thing you need in welcoming your guests, make sure that you have prepared a good speech. You will be speaking in front of the audience as a welcome speech. Make it a lively and humorous one while also keeping some lines about the reason for your celebration.
