Continuing a worldwide tradition than spans more than 250 years, the birth day and life of Scotland’s most famous poet Robert Burns (1759-1796) will be celebrated in Bali on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at the Bali Dynasty Resort in South Kuta.

As similar gatherings are convened on that date in Scotland and in every corner of the globe – the Bali “Burns Night” will be a gala celebration of the life, poems and music of the fabled Scottish bard Robert Burns who was born in Scotland on January 25, 1759.

While all are welcome – be they Scottish or merely “Brave Hearted” – seating is limited and early booking is recommended. Australian holidaymakers are more than welcome to join the festivites.

The evening will begin with pre-dinner drinks following by the traditional fare of:

  • Cock a Leekie Soup
  • Haggis
  • Neeps and Tatties
  • Rare Scottish Rib of Beef with trimmings and seasonal vegetables
  • Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding 
Free-flow beer and wine will accompany the dinner.

And, of course, guests are most welcome to dress as “Scottish as they like.”

Max Kay - a Famous Scottish Entertainer  and also a Western Australian Icon will be on hand serving as Master of ceremonies for the evening. Max has appeared all over the world, including Canada and Carnegie Hall in the U.S.A.. 

With an extensive background in the performing arts and the organization of many Burns nights to his credit, Max will lead the evening of Scottish poetry and music, aided by members of the Scottish Diaspora living and vacationing in Bali.
