Fifers invited to toast the Bard at 'Auld Lang Zoom' virtual Burns event
and live on Freeview channel 276
It is an online celebration of Robert Burns, Scotland’s best loved poet, this year due to gatherings being banned under pandemic restrictions.
A spokeswoman for the club said: “You can expect fun, laughter, entertainment, enlightenment, music, poetry and a great evening in for you and your family; the entertainment is being provided by local people and is absolutely not to be missed. Funds raised will continue the fight towards a polio free world.
“The programme for the evening will start off with local music and then move on to a rendition of Holy Willie's prayer.
“There will be an Introduction by the club president and then an appearance by Burntisland butcher, Tom Courts, who will explain all about haggis.
"We will then move on to the piping and address to the haggis, and then the winners from our local primary schools will perform their winning Burns competition poems.
"Included in the programme are the Immortal Memory, music o the f Burns, Tam O' Shanter and a local singer and musicians.”
Tickets for the event, which runs from 6.45pm - 8.45pm, are available priced £5.00, either directly from Eventbrite, or by using the links on the Rotary Club of Burntisland and Kinghorn website.
