<strong>7 ways to celebrate Burns Night in Liverpool 2023 </strong>

Burns Night takes place on Wednesday 25 January, and of course, Liverpool will be celebrating

Each year, on January 25, people around the world raise a toast to the legacy of Scotland’s greatest storytellers – Robert Burns.

If you’re unfamiliar with Robert Burns – The 18th Century poet is known by a number of different names including Rabbie Burns and the Bard of Ayrshire, and he narrowly beat William ‘Braveheart’ Wallace to be named as the greatest Scot in a poll ran by STV in 2009. 

He’s kind of a big deal, he also wrote the classic New Years Eve song – “Auld Lang Syne”

Did you know that the first Burns supper is thought to have taken place over 200 years ago? Friends of the late poet came together to celebrate his influential poetry and writing. 

Many of these Burns Night traditions remain intact to this very day, such as enjoying whisky, haggis and of course reciting a Burns poem or two. Here is how you can celebrate this age-old Scottish tradition in Liverpool this year!

Delifonseca

Delifonseca is set to raise a wee dram for their annual Burns Night celebrations. The team will don their kilts once again for the suitably Scottish evening, when it returns on Wednesday 25 January. 

Guests will be treated to a three-course feast that will offer a true taste of Scotland, inspired by the very best of produce and cooking traditions, as well as an arrival cocktail in the form of the inspired ‘Irn-Bru’ Bramble. 

Diners will be greeted by a selection of starters including the likes of a traditional Cullen skink (a Smoked haddock, potato & leek soup), and a ‘Cock-a-leekie’ terrine. 

For mains, there is a choice of venison with beef and ale stew, whisky dumplings and creamy mash – as well as classic traditional haggis with neeps and tatties. You can even get yourself a deep fried mars bar or traditional Cranachan for dessert! 

The Burns Night event takes place on Wednesday, January 25 from 5pm – 8pm and is priced at £40 per person.
