Burns Night at the Boisdale Mayfair: the Friend we Trust, the Fair we Love

In the spirit of the cultural experiences for which London is rightly famous, SEEN is very much looking forward to sampling the delights of the Burns Night Hootenanny at the brand new Boisdale of Mayfair, which has launched just in time for the uniquely Scottish celebration of poet Robert Burns, the author of ‘Auld Lang Syne’.


A Burns Night spent at any of the Boisdale Restaurants promises to be one of fine food, drink and entertainment. The traditional Burns Night Dinner will be served at all four Boisdale sites from mid-January.


Diners will be transported deep into the Scottish Highlands with a resplendent five-course feast, including Hebridean crab, Roast Aberdeenshire dry-aged fillet of beef and Tispy Scotch tart with clotted cream. The star of the evening is of course, the Roast Macsween Haggis, served with full address from Boisdale’s resident Piper, Willie. Expect a curious Scottish pastime when visiting Boisdale, they suggest visitors pour Macallan Rare cask Scotch Whisky on their haggis to bring out the flavours – give it a go!


A specially selected wine pairing will be served with each course, rounded off in traditional style with a noggin of fine Scotch, without which no Burns Night celebration would be complete. It is the perfect accompaniment to the celebration of Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns, whose short poem Grace After Meat seems particularly apt for the occasion.

O Thou, in whom we live and move,
Who mad’st the sea and shore,
Thy goodness constantly we prove,
And grateful would adore.

And if it please thee, Pow’r above,
Still grant us with such store;
The Friend we trust; the Fair we love;
And we desire no more.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
