Our philosophy here at the Spirit of Yorkshire is all about respecting tradition but doing things our own way.
After the sell-out events in 2019, 2020, and 2022 we're doing it again in 2023!
We're all about respecting tradition but doing things our own way, and we apply this philosophy to Burns Night as well as whisky making! Keeping many of the Scottish Burns Night traditions alive but introducing some special North and East Yorkshire elements too, we'll be getting in the festive mood with good food, good company and great whisky.
Join us for an evening of whisky, poetry and haggis. Each ticket includes a 2-course meal of a Burns supper with a Yorkshire twist, followed by a traditional dessert.
Drinks-wise we’ll start off the night with a whisky cocktail, and five great drams will be poured throughout the evening. Beer and wine will also be available on the night with an extra charge.
All tickets are e-tickets, the confirmation email will act as your ticket.
Please let us know any dietary requirements in advance.

But who was Robert Burns and what is Burns Night?
Burns' fame has surged in recent years, with more Burns Nights than ever taking place all over the world. But it wasn’t just his linguistic skills that have written Burns into the pages of human history. His story is one of a true underdog, rising from an impoverished, bleak childhood in rural Scotland to the highest circles of society in his time. In true ‘rock star’ fashion he burnt out and died young. Living life hard and fast like many of the greats, a 18th century Elvis Presley if you will.
Aside from poetry, Burns is perhaps best known for his love of whisky and a good old knees-up! As any good Burns historian will tell you he was far from shy when it came to having a drink and a good time. When you strip out the formality, this is what all good Burns nights are about: having fun with family, friends and a nice bottle (or two) of whisky.
Burns nights come in all manner of forms from big formal dinners with vociferous toasts right down to just a couple of friends cracking a bottle of something tasty and enjoying each others company. This Burns night, we'll be striking a balance. A respectful nod to the amiable bard, but with a focus on the tasting of amazing whisky and the eating of delicious food, complemented by a light dusting of his less serious pieces.
