Burns Night 2019

Forget Dry January, at Escapade, we are always on a lookout for a party and what better way to cure the January blues than celebrate Burns Night!  The annual Scottish extravaganza falls on the 25th Jan and calls for an excuse to dress up, drink whisky and eat Haggis, all in honor and celebration of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns of course.

Looking for somewhere to celebrate?  Here are a few events which caught our eye:

London Kilt Run

Location:  Various London locations

When: Saturday 26th Jan @11am

Tickets: Free

Fancy something a bit different? At Escapade we always do and can’t help but get excited about the London Kilt Run. Taking place around various locations in London, this 10k will begin at the Robert Burns Statue in Victoria Embankment Gardens and will take in many Scottish themed sights along the way before ending up at a Scottish themed venue of course.

Sound appealing? We have plenty of kilts here!

Burns Night at the Rhythm and Booze Project

Location: Crol and Co, Bermondsey

When: Friday 25th January @ 19:30

Tickets: £50

Thankfully Burns Night falls on a Friday so this boozy evening shouldn’t be a problem because Rhythm and Booze Project, hosted by Felipe and Paul are bringing you a full night of whisky, music and mayhem as well some poetry of course. Whilst we love a bit of poetry, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t most excited about the OPEN BAR and donning our Scottish Fancy Dress.
