Burns Supper 2023
Date: Saturday, 21 January 2023 Time: 18:30 h – midnight CET Venue: Freimaurerloge “Zur Einigkeit”, Kaiserstraße 37, 60329 Frankfurt am Main
Admission Fee: 90€
After a break of 3 years, the BCCG Rhine-Main region will at last be able to hold our renowned Burns Supper, attended and loved by hundreds of you in the past and held by millions around the world to celebrate the birth of the Scottish Bard, “Rabbie” Burns.
This has been made possible by our generous sponsors: DZ Bank, FrankfurtRheinMain GmbH, flatexDEGIRO AG, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, PwC, GSK Stockmann, the Scottish Government in Germany and Scottish Development International. We are also proud to have the endorsement of the British Honorary Consulate in Frankfurt.
What’s in store: This year, the Immortal Memory speech in honour of Burns will be delivered by Dr Philippa Whitford, SNP Member of Parliament for Central Ayrshire (Burns country!) and Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Germany at Westminster. She will be only the second woman ever to do so at this event. Also featured will be the traditional 3-course Supper including haggis (also the vegetarian option), bagpipes, singing, dancing and some fine single-malt whiskies.
Dress code: “Laddies” (gentlemen) are invited to wear Smoking (dinner jacket) or a dark suit, or a kilt – the more the merrier! – and the “Lassies” (ladies) an evening gown or cocktail dress. Dancing shoes are advisable!
