From Wikipedia - "A Burns supper (or Burns Night) is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day or Burns Night (Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year."
So now you know what it is and why it exists, you may want your options for your own Burns supper in a Didsbury restaurant.
