On Saturday 24th January, the Christ College Community were out in force as they celebrated Burns Night with a traditional ceilidh organised by The Society of Friends of Christ College.
The sellout event was attended by parents, staff and members of the public and the occasion was graced by a genuine Scottish haggis which had travelled by train all of the way from Scotland. In time honoured fashion, the haggis was addressed by Alway House Housemaster, Magnus Caithness who recited Robert Burns’ poem ‘Address to a Haggis’. The haggis was then served with neeps and tatties prepared by members of the Society of Friends of Christ College Committee.
Caller Di Esplin coordinated the dancing and music was provided by The Burns Unit, a ceilidh band comprising Tim Cronin (violin), Ruth Bowen (double bass), Nigel Evans (guitar) and Jamie Thomas (accordion and flute).
