How to Celebrate Burns Night

Burns Night Party Celebration

Looking for the perfect party destination this Burns Night? Then there is no better place then Mr Fogg’s for unrivalled bagpiped revelry. Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Glenfiddich, a delightful bagpipe performance and an abundance of Scottish inspired canapés. Don't worry there will also be poetry and plenty of tartan kilts!

For a night of dancing to the bagpipes at this Burns Night celebration, our playful Seville Dress is a fun party guest outfit, with its fit and flared skirt. Bright florals scatter down this pretty number, finishing with a beautiful row of posies along the trim of the flowing A-line skirt. The high waistline flatters all shapes, perfect for enjoying delicious haggis canapés. 

A Burns Night Whisky Tasting

It would almost be rude not to have any whisky on Burns Night so what better way to celebrate then with a tutored whisky tasting! The Bridge Pub and Restaurant in the heart of Manchester will take you on a virtual distillery tour, explaining how single malt whisky is made and you will nose and taste a range of 6 whiskies from around Scotland.

While sampling whisky delights, keep cosy and relaxed in style with our Seville Top. This pretty Blouse features all-over florals, printed subtly on a white background - making it the perfect statement for heading to a cosy pub for a tasting and learning more about this classic Scottish liquor. Wear this piece tucked in or flowing free from our Athens Trouser, adding a touch of tailoring to this casual look.
