Big Penny Social will be throwing their doors open for the annual Burns Night Ceilidh celebration on three consecutive nights this year.

With tickets from £14 per person, revellers will be able to celebrate all things Scottish on 24th, 25th, and 26th January, with a traditional bagpipe player to kickstart the evening, alongside live violin music and a band of guitar, bass, and drums to set the tone for the night.

On the menu will be haggis, neeps and tatties for those who wish to refuel in between dancing. 

And as always, there’s a huge selection of craft beers from around London and further afield alongside a lengthy wine and cocktail list, and a variety of non-alcoholic drinks.
