    Each year, Scots from all over the world gather in the dark days of winter for a traditional evening meal and a joyous celebration to commemorate the birthday of one of their favorite sons, Robert Burns. The Brandywine Burns Supper consists of a hearty meal of traditional Scottish fare, including haggis and a tasting selection of a Belhaven ale and three single malt whiskies. A bagpiper performs stirring Scottish music to accompany the haggis as it is brought to the table, followed by an authentic Scottish rendition of the “Address to a Haggis.” Throughout the meal, guests enjoy single malt whisky tastings carefully paired with each delicious course.

    Born on January 25, 1759, on a tenant farm, Robert Burns captured the imagination and spirit of the Scottish people with his prose and poetry. He was lionized during his lifetime all over his native land. A few years after his untimely death at 37, his friends began to gather on his birthday for a meal and toasted his “immortal memory.” The tradition has continued for over 200 years and has spread to every country where Scots have settled.

    The Museum galleries will be open for an hour before dinner for guests to enjoy.
