How will tickets be allocated?

As in previous years, allocation of tables will be at the discretion of the Committee, generally on a first come, first served basis. In the case of over subscription preference will be given based on the number of paid-up members of the Society per table. Tables will consist of ten places. The Society is nevertheless organised for the benefit of its members and we will endeavour to accommodate applications from members for tables of less than ten places, and single applications from members.

The closing date for applications is 22 November 2023

Can I pre-order drinks?

With regard to pre-Supper drinks, these are made available in the King George III Room where a cash bar is available. 

Pre-Supper and Supper drinks for corporate hospitality tables must be pre-ordered directly from The Brewery and not via the Society.

What if I have special dietary requirements?

Arrangements can be made for vegetarians/persons with special dietary requirements. This information is supplied to The Brewery via the Society. Please note that if the Society is not notified of any specific dietary requirements by Monday 8 January 2024 an extra cost may be charged by The Brewery for each special meal required and this cost will be passed on to the applicant. Please complete dietary requirements via our website.

What is the dress code?

The Burns Supper is a black-tie event. Highland Dress is acceptable and actively encouraged!

Can I provide a seating plan for my table?

Successful applicants are responsible for laying out place cards, if they are using them, at their table(s) and access is given early to the Porter Tun Room where the Supper is held to allow this to be done.

Can non-members apply for tickets?

The Committee would like to emphasise that for applications to be successful they must be made by at least one fully paid up member of the Society.
