This is a fundraising event for the Museum and tickets are priced at 100 per person or 850 for a table of ten places. This price will include a reception in our Nelson Gallery, a traditional Burns' Night Supper (with the parade of the haggis), on the theme of the Scots and the Sea, with a reflection on the life and achievements of Robert Burns and Horatio Nelson, through poetry, prose and music.
