Phnom Penh is invited to celebrate the bonnie Scottish tradition with an entire evening of eating, drinking, dancing and dizzying merriment
Just as we finish singing Auld Lang Syne to ring in the new year, there is the annual night of whisky and Ceilidh dancing to celebrate the legendary Scot who first penned the classic ballad.
Robert Burns, the famed poet and embodiment of Scottish culture, is feted by the British diaspora every year on the anniversary of his birthday, January 25, 1759, with a massive feast. Revelers dine on Scotland’s national dish, haggis, while sipping on the country’s famous whisky and reciting poems from the prolific author’s oeuvre.
BritCham is pulling out all the stops to throw a Burns Night party on Saturday that would do the poet proud. A black tie event at the prestigious Raffles Hotel Le Royal, the soirée will have haggis flown in from the UK, rounds and rounds of the exuberant Scottish dance, the Ceildih, and even a chance to win a ticket to the nation’s capital, Edinburgh!
Martin McCarthy, Chair of BritCham, says, “Our Burn’s Night will bring together people from all nationalities where we come to appreciate the poet that left a lifetime legacy even after his passing more than 200 years ago”.
Tickets are $70 for BritCham members and $75 for non members. They have corporate tables available for up to ten people as well for $680.
