Vancouver set to celebrate the life of Robbie Burns

December 3, 2018 by  

Each year, the world pays tribute to one of Scotland’s most famous poets. This will be the spirit behind a Vancouver celebration including lots of traditional touches that have come to be associated with Scottish culture.

The Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver will be marking Robbie Burns Day with an evening dedicated to this 18th-Century author. The men who attend this special affair are welcome to wear a kilt or dark suit paired with a plaid tie, while the ladies are invited to choose a dress with Scottish flair.

The festivities will open with a ceremony where the guests are officially piped in. After this, the guests can sample the exclusive malts that will be poured, and traditional dishes from Scotland, including haggis, are also on the menu. A keynote speaker will address the crowd, and both poetry readings and a live auction have also been planned.

At the end of the evening, the group will sing one of Robert Burns’ best known poems, ‘Auld Lang Syne’, to bid the occasion fond farewell for another year. A portion of the monies from this function will be donated to Plaid for Dad, and VIP invitations, banners, and signage are just a few of the items that can be prepared for this type of affair by area print shops.

The Celtic celebration will be on January 25. The hotel can be found at 300-999 Canada Place.
