About Burns Night Ceilidh - Fundraiser for migrants in Walthamstow

Burns Night is an annual celebration of the birthday of the eighteenth century Scottish poet Robert Burns. We'll be putting on a traditional cèilidh (pronounced ‘kay-lee’) to mark the occasion, which involves Scottish dancing and the playing of Gaelic folk music. Plus there'll be a delicious haggis meal, poetry reading and singing!

We'll be fundraising on the night for the Walthamstow Migrant Support Centre which WMAG runs every week. Demand for the centre's service is growing all the time so to keep supporting migrants in our area, we need your help! What to expect:

  • E17's very own Jig17 will get us jiving the night away with their ceilidh rhythms - no expertise required, Jig17's excellent caller Jac will explain all the moves so that everyone who wants to can join the dance!
  • A delicious 2-course meal with bagpiping hot haggis (vegetarian & meat) from Deeney's and a wee dram of whiskey to wash it down!
  • The reading of the winning entry of our Burns Night Poetry competition, judged by local poet Michael Shann!
  • The singing of traditional Burns Night songs and reading of the Burns Night poem!

It should be a great evening for a fantastic cause!

Love and Solidarity,

The WMAG Team


Robert Burns was well-know for his defence of migrants. In 1786, he wrote to the Earl of Breadalbane, President of the Highland Society, defending the right of Highlanders to escape their overlords and emigrate to Canada.

You can read his full 'Address of Beelzebub' by following the link, extra haggis for anyone who can understand every word!  http://www.robertburns.org/works/110.shtml
