A taste of Scotland will come to Reading’s town centre this Friday night thanks to a Burns Supper, hosted at The Oasis in Baker Street. The former pub turned community centre is the venue for the traditional celebration of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns.
The supper includes the traditional dish of haggis, neeps and tatties – and, in true Scottish style, the haggis’ arrival will be accompanied by the sound of bagpipes, before being addressed in verse.
There will be a Scottish-themed quiz and some recitals of Burns poetry. The singing of the traditional Scottish song Auld Lang Syne will also take place.
Organised by members of nearby Carey Baptist Church, The Oasis will be opening the doors to the community for the fun event, which starts at 7.30pm on Friday, January 31. The Oasis is in Baker Street, just off the Oxford Road and near the Broad Street Mall.
Jamie Cater, Outreach Worker for Carey Baptist Church, said: ” We are having a Burns Night at The Oasis in Baker Street this Friday. There will be haggis, neeps and tatties. All welcome!”
