Searching for London’s biggest Burns Night extravaganza?

Doddie Weir’s foundation is hosting its inaugural Burns event in the capital, celebrating the Scottish Bard’s life and work and also raising money for Motor Neuron Disease (MND) research

Ya wee timorous beasties! If you’re keen to raise a dram to Scotland’s most famous poet as well as raise funds for essential research, this bonanza of a Burns’ shindig is the one for you.

Taking place at The Brewery on Burns Night (Tuesday 25th Jan), it looks set to be London’s biggest Burns Supper – with over 350 guests expected to be in attendance and a brilliant night of entertainment ahead.

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers

Launched in 2017, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation was set up by Doddie Weir OBE – one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities – after the famous Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. The foundation is committed to helping improve the lives of those affected by the incurable disease.

The Burns Supper, presented by event giants hastaworld along with the foundation, will see guests enjoy a five-course dinner, poems and song, and a line-up of well-known celebrities from the worlds of sport and television.

Sky Sports presenter Hayley McQueen will host the black tie (or kilted, in this instance!) event that will also feature entertainment by The Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
