Islington pubs to go Scottish mad for Burns night
PUBS across Islington will be going all-out to celebrate Burns Night next week.
The Alma, in Newington Green Road, Newington Green, is running a week of Scottish-themed activities starting next Wednesday (19) and ending on Burns Night the following Tuesday.
The entertainment will include Scottish movies, music and a pub quiz – and even a piper on the night itself. Scottish fare from Haggis to Black and White Pudding will also be on offer.
Wetherspoon pubs The Angel, in Islington High Street, Islington, and The White Swan, in Upper Street, Highbury Corner, will also host week-long celebrations by serving haggis, neeps and tatties. And, of course, there will be a selection of Scottish real ales
The Glass Works in The N1 Centre, Parkfield Street, Islington, will have Scottish Country Dancing Group The Gay Gordons performing on Thursday January 20. The Islington-based group will perform traditional Scottish dances and a bag-piper will pipe in the haggis.
The Glass Works pub manager Gareth Hearne said: “Nowadays very few pubs celebrate Burns Night, however we are so keen for our customers to enjoy it that we are hosting the celebrations for seven days.”
