We kicked off 2018 with celebrating Burns Night at the Brewers Inn, in Wandsworth. We had a huge turnout and the acts were a spectacle to behold in themselves! We arrived, set up the performance area and ushered in a hearty 2018 in true Scottish tradition, albeit with our own poetic twist.
Due to overwhelming favour in support, we decided to substitute an original haggis with our sweeter, more appetising, haggis cake- for the evening.
With our host Laurence ushering on acts like Soulish, Tristen, Brett, Anna and the immaculate Paul Point, the evening hosted a mixture of music, Scottish themed poetry, recitation of Burns’ poetry, spoken word and an actual Scott who sang with the crowd, his rendition of Auld Langs Syne.
With an energetic crowd, it was a truly bonnie ol’ night and a perfect New Year debut for Poetical Word.
