Burns Night London 2022 is a real highlight of the year. It’s a chance to celebrate the life of Scotland’s National Poet – Robert Burns – in a way he would have wanted: eating, drinking, dancing and laughter.
We’ll be at St. Mary’s, Wyndham Place, Marylebone, W1H 1PQ this year. It’s a large venue with great facilities. There’s a huge dance floor, fantastic sound system and a fab space to eat.
Doors open at 6:30 and dancing is from 7:30-10:30. There are some great bars in the area to continue the party after 10:30. The live band and caller will lead you through the steps, so no experience is necessary.
There is no particular dress code and you’ll fit in whether you are in full highland outfit, flowing ball gown or jeans and trainers. People do generally make more of an effort for Burns night. Some tartan is appreciated and you look good in it too!
