Don't miss your chance to enjoy a fine Scottish feast at the Theatre Royal Camperdown during the Robert Burns Scottish Festival.

Tickets to the Deer Stalkers Dinner on Saturday 20 May (7 pm) must be booked by Monday 15 May through Corangamite Shire.

The evening begins with a sense of occasion as Warrnambool Pipes and Drums (WADPADI) leads the ‘Piping of the Haggis’, followed by the traditional Address to the Haggis by special guest Len Murray.

Regarded as one of Scotland’s foremost speakers on Robert Burns, Mr Murray has spoken at more than 400 Burns suppers across the world.

Listen to the bagpipes by renowned solo piper Jason Craig and enjoy a performance by multi award winning singer/harpist Siobhan Owen, as well as return artists Vivien Hamilton, Fiona Ross, and duo Chris Duncan and Catherine Strutt.

The three course menu, created by Jarrod Bell from Snout in the Trough, features a modern take on traditional Scottish fare.

Starting with haggis, neeps and tatties, a selection of soups, and a choice of roast duck or braised lamb shoulder for mains, the menu finishes with clootie dumpling and lemon tart for dessert.

Festival committee member Cr Ruth Gstrein said the night is a celebration of Scottish tradition.

“It is a chance to come out and celebrate Scottish heritage as well as enjoy great food, music and company,” she said.

Deer Stalker Dinner tickets are $85 per person and can be purchased through Corangamite Shire on 03 5593 7100.
