The Annual Dinner of the Perth Burns Club is our most prestigious event of the year and widely regarded as being one of Perth’s leading social occasions. It provides an ideal opportunity for local businesses and other organisations to enjoy a great night out and perhaps also to reward valued customers and/or high-performing staff. The seating plan features round tables each seating eight persons – ideal for group bookings – and almost any party size can be accommodated.
The Dinner will be held in the Salutation Hotel, Perth on Saturday, 26th January, 2019 at 6.30 for 7 pm.
“The Immortal Memory” is to be proposed by Donald Paton, whose remarkable 35 years of service to the Club was recognised at our 2016 Dinner. Donald is current President of The Burns Club of Vancouver and also Honorary Life President of The Perth Burns Club.
The Toast to the Lasses will be given by Councillor Willie Wilson, the Depute Provost of Perth & Kinross. The Reply from the Lasses will be given by former Councillor Joan McEwen. Our programme will include other artistes of the accustomed high standard. Further details are provided on the club’s website at http://www.perthburnsclub.org.uk/dinners.html
The ticket price is £27 for Club members and their spouses and £32 for non-members. There is no limit to the number of guest tickets allowed but, as recent dinners have seen high attendances and numbers are limited to 175, early booking is advised. Although dress for the function is optional, the wearing of evening or Highland dress is strongly encouraged. Any special seating or dietary requests should be mentioned on the reply form. Please note that we cannot offer refunds for bookings cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the Dinner unless the places can be filled from a waiting list.
The Queen has had corgis by her side ever since she was seven years old and persuaded her father to buy one for the family. The dogs are the Queen’s constant companions and Jenny’s book reveals the scraps and scrapes in which the dogs have been involved.
Daughter of Sir John Junor and school-mate of Princess Anne, journalist, TV presenter and popular writer, Penny Junor is possibly best known for her royal biographies, originating with Diana: Princess of Wales, earning her the label of ‘royal expert’. This is a fascinating and affectionate look at the Queen and her most faithful companions on what really makes our much-loved and longest reigning monarch truly light up.
