The British Association of Monaco is holding its Burns’ Night celebration on January 20. “So kilts and tartan at the ready and we hope that many members and friends will come and join us to celebrate this great Scottish poet and participate in a few Scottish dances,” says Vanessa Ilsley, BAM’s president. The venue is Stars’n’Bars, and the party starts at 7:30 pm. Pre-paid tickets only can be booked though their website.
