Rabbie Burns is a very popular figure with our friends in Aubigny. Aubigny Twinning Committee organise an annual Burn’s Lunch, concert and dance – it starts at noon with an aperitif, then lunch , concert and dancing until 9.00pm ! The event is a very successful fundraiser each year. It also highlights the strong links between Scotland and France and the Twinning partnership between Aubigny and Haddington.

Last year’s event on Sunday 26th January was a resounding success with an amazing 240 guests – some who had made the journey down to Aubigny from Paris!

Provost John MacMillan and his wife Mary were invited as guests of the Mayor of Aubigny, Madame Renier. John gave a reflective rendition of the Immortal Memory and in true Burns tradition Haggis, neeps and tatties were on the Menu with a fair few whiskies being supped. A great time was had by all!

Due to the pandemic the event is unable to take place this year. However, Haddington Twinning are organising a Burns Celebration this month via Zoom. They will be joined by Aubigny Twinning Committee and special guests.

More information on this Zoom online event to follow soon……….
