Burns Night in Rome

The Scottish bar Le Bon Bock celebrates Burns Night with an evening of festivities centred around Scotland's Robert Burns on Saturday 25 January, from 19.00-02.00.

Widely regarded as Scotland's national poet, Burns (1759-1796) wrote in the Scots language as well as English. He is perhaps best known for composing Auld Lang Syne, traditionally sung to welcome in the new year.

The event at Le Bon Bock includes readings of Burns' poems as well as Scottish songs, whisky, beer and free haggis. For more info see the bar's Facebook page.

Meanwhile at the Highlander Scottish pub on Vicolo di S. Biagio 9, the City of Rome Pipe Band celebrates Burns Night with songs, tunes and poetry, from 18.00-20.00.

The band comprises bagpiper Francesco Toiati, guitarist and vocalist Marzio Venuti Mazzi and flautist Luca Verzulli.

They are joined by special guests, The Faerie Trio, with Isa Ph on vocals and bodhrán, Mariafrancesca Venturo vocals and guitar, and Beatrice De Simone on celtic harp.
