Club Meeting- Burns Night 19th January 2015

This is becoming a regular feature of our winter Speaker season.

The lucky celebrity was again Gavin Pratt, complete with comely wife (prompter- unneeded).

This time his props were 3 suckers, a Tam o’ shanter, a Scarf, and 2 fearsome masks.

This guy is a Star Turn when it comes to The Bard. We were lucky to have him- thanks to the Taylor family.

We started off with a wee Supper, again thanks to Jim Macfarlane.

The first poem (as usual the scene set ahead of…) was Death & Dr Hardbook, accompanied by the props.

The next, Unco Guid, illustrated that nothing has changed in the hypocrisy stakes. Politicians, some of the Church, TV celebrities & dare I say Bankers, are no longer considered pillars of the community.

And finally, at no extra charge, The Epistle to J. Lapcraik.

Gavin, it was pleasure to have you with us again. Awrra Best
