Hire Simon and Franchi of Simply Whisky to fire up your Burns Night
“But oil’d by thee, The wheels o’ life gae down-hill, scrievin, Wi’ rattlin glee.” — Robert Burns

Private hire burns night. Burns supper host. We mix the traditional with the contemporary to provide a modern day appreciation of Scotland’s bard, Robert Burns, through passionate and lively readings of his poems which celebrate his life and work. Our memorable address to the haggis and our unique Burns-aoke and Burns Idol games get people involved, ensuring an unforgettable evening for all.

We’ve been hired by the best…

Simon and Franchi know how to put on a great show. They know how to pitch and pace the proceedings perfectly. They know how to create a sense of gleeful drama. They know how to perform with passion. In short, they know their Burns—and they do him proud. Slainté!

Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for coming and being in great spirits at our Burns Night event – you and the guys made the evening what it was!

Dramatic, enthralling, entertaining, captivating; just some of the words I’d use to describe Simply Whisky and their totally authentic yet quirky delivery of Burns’ Night at London Bridge. We had a truly successful evening and all of our guests were treated to a tremendous experience from start to finish, deftly and expertly guided through long standing traditions by the boundless enthusiasm of Simon and Franchi. I’ve already penciled them in for next year!

A huge thank you to Simon and Franchi of Simply Whisky for supplying us with the much needed celtic contingent at our Burns Night Extravaganza. These two are the walking definition of Scottish hospitality and worked their sporrans off, with a well informed and lively whisky masterclass before compering our Burns Supper. Their Selkirk Grace was wonderful and the Ode to a Haggis passionately and hilariously delivered, while their Burns Factor poetry competition had the audience in rapturous applause. They didn’t take a moment to themselves, constantly checking in and entertaining individual tables when not commanding the floor. They were a sheer delight to work with from start to finish; a rare combination of absolute professionalism, mixed with a generous slug of good humour and a sprinkling of roguery.
