A Burns Night Ceilidh Workshop

Date: Saturday 25 Jan 2014

Location: The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery

Time: 14:00 - 16:00

Cost: Free Event

Continuing our celebrations for Robbie Burns Day, we invite you to experience the art of Scottish Country Dancing and the Ceilidh here at the gallery!

Join the University of Leeds' Scottish Country Dance Society and warm those cold toes with the Duke of Perth, the Gay Gordons and the Virginia Reel!  

Our celebrations for this most revered and famous poet will begin at 12midday in the Gallery's Education Room with a short talk and discussion about the items within the University's Special Collections, which relate directly to the bard himself.  

We do hope you will be able to join us for some, if not all of the events on this day, and perhaps we shall see you over a nice piece of shortbread and a good old brew!  

Tartan encouraged but not compulsory!

This is a free workshop but please do book in advance. Some tickets will be available on the day.
