Charity Burns Night celebrations at Apollo Hotel – Friday 26th January 2018

The Pink Place, a cancer support service, is hosting a Burns Night at Apollo Hotel in Basingstoke on Friday 26th January 2018 from 7pm until midnight.

Burns Night is a celebration of the life and work of the poet Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems, including the well-loved Auld Lang Syne. The first Burns Night was held in 1801 and it has been a popular event ever since.

In true tradition, the black-tie event at Apollo Hotel will feature a piper, whisky toast, four course Scottish dinner, Scottish music and dancing, along with performances of poems written by Burns. If you have traditional Scottish dress, we encourage you to wear it! Tickets cost £50 each and the funds raised will go to help The Pink Place in Basingstoke, who offer free of charge beauty therapies and haircare to ladies with breast cancer.

Paul Fearon, General Manager of Apollo Hotel, says:

“The Pink Place has been doing simply phenomenal work for a number of years; helping those living with breast cancer to increase their sense of confidence and wellbeing. Funds raised from events like this help provide the resources they need to offer this service to their guests free of charge. The support that The Pink Place gives to local cancer patients, including their Wednesday coffee mornings, provides visitors with an important link to advice and support from others in similar circumstances. Apollo Hotel is so proud to host Burns Night in aid of their vital, compassionate and charitable work.”

Tickets are priced at £50 each. To purchase your tickets for Burns Night at Apollo Hotel, call The Pink Place on 07899 970 841 or email
