Burns Supper 2015

At the 2014 Easter exchange in Guyancourt, the Linlithgow Twinning Committee were asked to help organise a Burns Supper which was to take place at the end of January 2015 in Guyancourt. A lot of hard work went into the organisation of the event but the outcome was a great success. 41 people flew over from Scotland including 22 members of the Linlithgow Ladies Choir.

On the Friday evening, the Linlithgow Ladies Choir to part in a joint concert with the Guyancourt singing group Les Falbalas.

The Burns Supper took place on the Saturday evening. The Guyancourt Comite de Jumelage and Town Hall were responsible for organising the venue, food and drink, and a piper.  The French chef did a great job replicated a Scottish meal – starting with cock-a-leekie soup, followed by haggis, neeps and tatties and then cranachan.
