About this Event

Live from Vancouver, Victoria and points throughout BC and the world, ScotFestBC and SFU’s Centre for Scottish Studies presents an online night (via Zoom) to celebrate Robert Burns songs, poetry and brilliance.

From the comfort of your home, don your best Scottish attire and join champion piper Jack Lee, accordion player Mary Ross, Dr. Leith Davis, fiddlers, reciters and haggis-stabbers as we weave through an online night of poetry, friendship and fun. Hosted by Mike Chisholm of ScotFestBC, the evening will include a random draw for a bottle of whisky from Macaloney Distillery ($130 value), a $250 gift card from Tartantown and “background check” prizes for the best home set decorations. Haggis for the “Address to a Haggis” provided by The British Store in Surrey, which is also providing git card prizes.

It’s all free. But registration and a Zoom account is required in advance (tickets are limited). Once registered, you will receive an email before the event with the access code. We encourage everyone to decorate their space for a Scottish evening. Judges will be viewing your screen to determine prizes.
