Trereife House was host to a fantastic night of music and fun on Burns Night.
We began with the sublime, a wonderful concert of medieval and renaissance music from lutenist Ben Salfied and soprano Lucile Clitherow; and ended with the ridiculous, whisky-fuelled Highland games.
Bill Mumford put on an impressive accent and recited Address to a Haggis, and Liz Woods gave the Immortal Memory toast after which we all agreed to offer Robert Burns honorary West Cornwall DFAS membership.
We nibbled on haggis pasties, smoked salmon, tablet and shortbread, all washed down with warming whisky and topped off the evening with some uproarious games. Everyone joined in, playing salmon fishing, coin rolling, sheepdog trials, pin the tail on the stag, guess the tartan and the very popular ‘What’s Under the Kilt?’
Thank you so much to Tim and Liz Le Grice for allowing us the use of their beautiful home.
We can’t wait for next year’s Burns Night!
