Hild Bede Association Burns Night Supper 2019
Friday 11 January 2019, 6.30pm


The Alumni Association's first Burns Night Supper will be taking place at The Caledonian Club in Belgravia, London on Friday 11 January 2019. Come and celebrate the poet Robert Burns and enjoy a Scottish feast, whilst listening to Jock Wishart address the haggis. Jock’s great-aunt, Jean Armour Burns Brown, was actually the last surviving legal descendent of Robert Burns, so who better to welcome us to our Caledonian evening.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to catch up with your old College friends and perhaps make some new ones. It will be an incredible evening!

6.30pm for drinks in the Library Room
7pm for dinner in the Morrison Room

Tickets: £90 for Premier Members; £95 for Standard Members
Tickets include a three-course meal, a glass of whisky and entertainment (wine will be available to purchase).

We have recently introduced the new category of Premier Membership, which is reflected on the Booking pages. This will entitle you to a reduction on all Hild Bede alumni events for a one-off payment of £15 for individuals and £30 for couples. Please contact the Alumni Team on 0191 334 8531 or email hildbede.alumni@durham.ac.uk for further details.
