Burns Night Supper at the Devonshire Club

If you’ve never celebrated Burn’s Night, SEEN recommends that you rectify this situation immediately. The combination of fine Scottish dining, whisky, piping and poetry is strangely moving. To quote the Bard of Ayrshire himself, from the his song, A Bottle and Friend, written in 1787:

Here’s a bottle and an honest friend!
What wad ye wish for mair man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o’care, man?

The Devonshire Club, in the heart of the City, will be hosting a traditional Burns Night supper, which draws inspiration from the Scottish larder. The meal will commence with a steaming bowl of Cock-a-leekie soup, followed by the classic show-stopping dish of haggis, neeps & tatties or an indulgent Arbroath smokies fish pie.

For dessert, guests will be treated to a rich and fruity Cranachan and whisky-laced coffee, accompanied by a deep-fried Mars Bar. Diners will also enjoy performances from an internationally acclaimed piper, Matthew Supranowicz, who won the world championship in 2015 with the pipe band Shotts and Dykehead. From 6pm. Price: £28 for 2 courses £35 for 3 courses.

My Furry Lady: the Art of Marion Peck at Dorothy Circus Gallery

SEEN can safely say that there is nowhere quite like Dorothy Circus Gallery in Notting Hill. It is the very antithesis of the white, clinical art gallery that abounds in the capital. From the beautiful yet disquieting pop surrealist art that is the passion of gallery director Alexandra Mazzanti, to the welcoming gallery itself complete …
