I trust DBS&W will be serving haggis, tatties & neeps this evening, the actual 'Burns Night', wearing a kilt, plaid & Tam O'Shanter in true 'White Heather Club' fashion. Will you close with "Westering Home", "We're No Awa' Tae Bide Awa'", or Flower O'Scotland? You have thought this through, haven't you? ye Gaberlunzie, ye TATTYBOGLE!

You missed it!

Ah, but an uproarious full house of 160 souls didn't miss a night of panto fun and music - and some gave a standing ovation. I got covered in flour.
