Gavin

I have been performing the works of Robert Burns since the age of four, having been forced into this peculiar form of child labour by a proud journalist father. Years later the son has been a long standing member of the Council of the Burns Club of London, and has spoken, sung, recited and shared his own enthralment with the Bard for hundreds of audiences, many regular bookings. I am for 16 years MC of my own annual black tie Burns Nicht at a major London members' club for 160 guests, and for 14 years MC of the Burns nicht of the world famous White Horse on Parsons Green.

Where you'll be

We'll begin in the gardens and make our way to a local pub where we'll Address the Haggis and sample a taste. Drinks are extra. The Gardens are a haven of peace in the centre of London with views of the River and Cleopatra's Needle. The Needle was made in Egypt for the Pharaoh Thotmes III in 1460 BC, making it almost 3,500 years old. It is known as Cleopatra’s Needle as it was brought to London from Alexandria, the royal city of Cleopatra.
