Burns’ Night formal hall

The College was alive with the scent of heather, the flash of bright tartan and the soulful wail of the pipes on Friday 24 January as we celebrated Burns’ night in the company of students, Fellows and guests. Professor Nabeel Affara, resplendent in a kilt of his own family tartan, delivered a tour-de-force recitation of the Address to a Haggis, fresh from its tour of the dining hall in the company of a kilted Dr Michael Franklin. It was then devoured, along with its smaller kin, by the appreciative throng. Finally, Dr Corinne Roughley rounded out the evening’s Scottish components with a performance of one of Burns’ own songs.
