Haggis anyone? Burns Night Supper in Zurich with the BSCC

Burns Supper in Zurich on 25th January 7.30pm – 11pm

Burns Night in Zurich

To celebrate the 254th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Burns Supper at the Zunfthaus zur Meisen in Zurich.  Burns Night is celebrated on 25th January all around the world and is a truly unique event.

It’s also a great opportunity to (a) try haggis if you’ve never eaten it before, (b) wear a kilt if you’ve got one and (c) get to sing “Auld Lang Syne” again! This event also has the added attraction of whisky tasting and a prize draw for plane tickets to Edinburgh!

How much do you know about Swiss or British trivia?  If you’ve been reading Diccon Bewes’ latest book “Swisscellany”, chances are you will know quite alot!  In any case, why not pit your wits against your friends, neighbours, fellow expats and come along on your own or sign up as a team of four to join in the fun.

Diccon is sure to be a highly entertaining Quiz Master.  If you have read his book Swiss Watching you will know what I mean – there are passages that have you laughing out loud.  Swiss Watching was featured as a Financial Times “best book” and was recently translated into German so that the Swiss can read about themselves in (one of) their own language (s) too!

The event is organised by the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce and takes place in Zurich on December 13th, starting at 6pm. If you would like to register,  please follow this link: Hurry though as tickets are selling fast!

Good luck and we look forward to seeing you at the Quiz Night on the 13th December in Zurich.
