Waverley Scotland’s Grand Tour – Part One: Holyrood and the Palace
And so here we are, January 25th. Burns Night.
A traditional Burns Supper can be a formal dinner held on, or around, Burns Night. Guests normally dress in traditional Highland dress – the men in kilts or tartan trousers and the women in smart dresses or formal evening wear, perhaps with a dash of tartan. Burns himself did not wear tartan but now the night is something of an occasion. Families and friends might dress up and have something along the same lines, or have a quiet evening celebrating Scotland’s national poet and the universal themes he immortalised. Some elements will be common to each meal. Outside of the normal toasts, there may be a keynote speaker (at a big dinner this might be a celebrity or personality).
Today we are sharing the third part of Tam O’Shanter and Burns Supper thoughts.
Robert Burns – A Poet in Personal ‘Lockdown’ - ‘Stay at home’ order, 1787
At this time of year, with Burns Night approaching us on Monday 25th January, eyes turn again to Scotland.
We are sending you good wishes from a cold and wet Scotland after a snowy morning.
Hello Waverley customers,
Hello, today we have uploaded a promotional video for TUMSHIE by Mark Mechan and you can find it if you go to the book product page, and click on the link for the book trailer video:
'Tailored for Scotland' by Deirdre Kinloch Anderson had a sneak preview in The Scotsman. The new book was published by Waverley Books on 10 September. The book, bound in genuine tartan cloth, tells the story of the company from its foundation to the present day. The book is a wonderful, fastidious document on Scottish history, tartan, costume, military uniform and the inside story of the ups and downs of a family company.
Creative ConversationsGlasgow University and Publishing Scotland (the trade body for publishing in Scotland) have organised a series of online conversations between authors, hosted by a key speaker, in August. These are open to the public, but ticketed through EventBrite, in August.
Hello from everyone at Waverley.
