Get set for a truly Scottish knees up at what promises to be the “very best Burns night this side of the border.”

The team behind Hackney Wick hot tub sensation Soak (formerly Supper Tub) have swapped bikinis and floating food for the striking surroundings of St John’s Hackney to host patriotic party, Burns Baby Burns .

Crammed with feasting, dancing and kilts, whisky and poetry will also be in full flow in a lively tribute to the country’s prestigious writer and poet, Robert Burns.

It’s the third event of its kind and this year will see Scottish Bard Phil Kay host while the Ceilidh Liberation Front are set to take care of the Celtic sounds on both Friday, January 22 and Saturday, January 23.

During both nights, party-goers will be able to toast the writer with a complimentary dram of whisky followed up by a night spent indulging in a three-course feast served up on china plate.

Meanwhile there will be plentiful rituals of poetry, reading and song and lucky ticket-holders will also be able to share some birthday love with ‘Rabbie’ himself.

A rowdy night of Ceilidh dancing will then ensue - and guests are encouraged to dress the part for the medieval style rave.

Tickets can be purchased for both the dance and dinner, and just the dance.

January 22 and 23, 8pm, from £35, St John’s at Hackney Church
