Celebrate Burns Night at Alnwick Castle

Don’t miss the popular Alnwick Castle Burns Night Supper on Friday 25th January, 7pm at The Sanctuary, the Castle’s extra special ‘occasional’ restaurant. 

This year, the event is held on the exact date of Robert Burns’ birth in 1759 in Ayrshire, Scotland. The famous poet and lyricist, sometimes known as the Ploughman Poet, is widely recognised as Scotland’s national poet and his work is celebrated worldwide.

Alnwick Castle’s Burns Night Supper is a great occasion to look forward to and enjoy with friends after all the gloom of early January.  It’s also traditionally very popular and places are limited so don’t delay!

Alnwick may not quite be in Scotland but it’s only 30 miles away and the Castle team reckons that’s close enough to celebrate. There are many local Scots people living close to Alnwick to add a flash of tartan to the party!

It’s set to be a great night of delicious Scottish food, drink, poetry and celebration. All offered in the atmospheric, historical surroundings of this magnificent mediaeval castle.

You’ll be able to indulge in a tasty four-course taster menu, inspired by traditional Scottish culinary pleasures, including mouth-watering haggis, neeps and tatties, kedgeree and gorgeous raspberry cranachan. 

And for those who like a dram to toast the haggis, there will be a great choice of whisky at the bar.

What better way to celebrate the end of January!

So, charge your glasses to toast, be merry and celebrate the poetry of Robert Burns!

Price is £35 per person.
