The proud Scots of Sheffield will gather to honour one of their own this evening – 18th century ‘Bard’ Robert Burns.

A night of tradition that includes blasting the bagpipes, ‘piping in the haggis’ and ‘a toast to the Lassies’ will be hosted for the 192nd year in the city by Sheffield Caledonian Society.

Secretary Sue Cameron said: “Burns is a worldwide phenomenon who has endured since the 1700s and, on Burns Night – also his birthday – he’s celebrated by the people of his homeland, as well as by ex-pats and appreciative fans all over the world.”
