Burns Supper, February 2020, Avangarda

On Saturday, the 29th of February, a large group of teachers, parents and other guests (which also included pupils from year 12 and 13) gathered at the Avangarda restaurant for the 4th annual Burns supper.

The traditional elements of a Burns Supper: the piping in of the Haggis, the Ode to the Haggis, the “Immortal memory of Robert Burns” and the toasts to the lads and lassies were interspersed with lively conversation, traditional food and music.

It was an unforgettable evening and special thanks go to Dr Alberto Massimo for his wonderful “Immortal Memory toast” and effortless piano playing, Jayne Lucas and her husband Alan for their witty toasts to the lads and lassies, Dr Lindsay Davidson and Izabella Davidson for their enthusiastic piping, Benedykt Walerowski for his energetic drumming and finally to Mrs Magdalena Pilarz-Bobrowska for the wonderfully sung Robert Burns poems.

Special thanks to Ewelina Soltys for organising this evening and to all who attended.
