A Burns night to remember!
Gordon Mallory formally addressed the Haggis (picture below) which had been presented to him by David James. After the Haggis was “killed” an excellent meal prepared by the Events and Charities team, of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties (alternative sausage or vegetarian option for the feint hearted) was served.
The meal was followed by entertainment from Gordon who read from the works of Robert Burns and sang folk songs.
This was followed by an evening of folk music from The Seasonal Singers, a 20 strong Teesside based singing group who sing for fun and raise funds for charity with 80% of their fee supporting charities. The first half of the performance consisting of many Scottish Favourites, The Sky Boat Song, Marie’s Wedding, Flower of Scotland and many more.
The second half of the performance consisted of many more well known favourites.
