January 2011– Burns Night Ceilidh
The College ceilidh got off to a flying start with the sound of bagpipes, a ceremonial ‘address’ of the mighty haggis and a recitation of poetry in Scots language. Ceilidhs are traditional Gaelic social gatherings, which usually involve folk music and energetic dancing. This event was no exception. In celebration of the birthday of the great poet Robert Burns the Kellogg dining room and bar were packed with dancers enjoying traditional Scottish (and English) country dancing late into the night.
