Battle of Bannockburn by Scottish House
On 24th June 1314, Robert the Bruce led his Scottish army to defeat Edward, King of England, to keep his people and his land free. It has become a tradition of the Scots to celebrate this day every year. Scottish House is presenting a Bannockburn Victory Lunch to be held Saturday 25th June 2011, upstairs in the Jubilee Room of the Granville RSL, 5 Memorial Drive, Granville, NSW, 2142.
Any Scotsman’s blood would be stirred, as the day is commenced with the traditional piping in of the haggis, addressed with the recital of Robbie Burns’ “Ode to the Haggis”, and served for all to sample with ‘neeps and tatties. Then, we’ll battle through the roast lunch, pavlova, cake and tea or coffee, pausing only for the entertainment. There will be the singing of traditional Scottish songs, a bagpipe solo medley and traditional highland dancers, and who knows what else? Commencing 11.30am-3pm.
All this for $25pp. Book your tickets from Scottish House: PO Box 1065, Guildford, NSW 2161 Phone: 02 9681 7705 RSVP by 16th June 2011.
