Cantab DC Burns Night
Come Celebrate this Traditional Salute to Scottish Heritage!

Unfortunately, due to the severe adverse weather event that is due to affect the DC area this weekend, we have decided to postpone our Robert Burns dinner for the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests.

The new event date is Saturday 27th February. All other details remain the same - the event will take place at Ri Ra pub in Georgetown at 7pm.

If you are interested in joining us on the new date - 27th February - please email, indicating how many tickets you are interested in. We will then coordinate ticket swaps between new guests and existing ticket-holders who are not able to attend the new date.




For the eighth consecutive year, Cantab DC will be celebrating Burns Night! Join your fellow alumni in a light-hearted evening that celebrates the life and poetry of the Bard of Scotland. There will be British food, original and auld poetry, a bagpiper, and haggis!

The event will take place at
Rí Rá Georgetown on 3125 M ST NW. We will start the evening at 7 pm on February 27th. Be sure to practice your Scottish accent and pull out your best Burns Night attire for a shot at winning some prizes!

Your ticket includes a three course dinner, a taste of haggis, and a dram of Scotch. A private cash bar will also be available. Please note that we cannot offer refunds. Tickets are non-transferable and all purchases are final.

Space is limited and this event is popular so please book early! Take a look at last year's 
pictures, and videos, and see who is coming on Facebook this year. The attire is smart casual. Tartan and Kilts encouraged! We look forward to seeing you there.
