Date: Jan 25, 2024

Mills Selig successfully hosted a memorable Burns Supper on Wednesday 24th January, treating guests to an evening filled with Scottish traditions, lively entertainment, and camaraderie.

Inspired by Mills Selig’s very own Scottish lassie, Kirsten Magee, Mills Selig successfully hosted a memorable Burns Supper on Wednesday 24 January, treating guests to an evening filled with Scottish traditions, lively entertainment and camaraderie.

The event, held at the iconic Titanic Hotel Belfast, brought together clients of Mills Selig, creating a vibrant atmosphere as they immersed themselves in the rich Scottish cultural tradition of a Burns Supper. The evening commenced with a captivating performance by talented Highland dancers, setting the tone for an unforgettable night of celebration.

Highlighting the authentic experience, the evening’s festivities featured the traditional piping in and toasting of the Haggis, a ceremonial event led by Wilfie Pyper MBE, who acted as the compere for the duration of the evening. Guests then enjoyed their traditional Scottish supper of Haggis, neeps and tatties, before being treated to a special performance by Mills Selig’s very own choir, Kirsten Magee, Anne Skeggs, Kiera Lee and Maeve Fisher, who performed an acapella rendition of ‘The Parting Glass’, proving there is no end to their talents.

Tartan was a welcome theme for evening with some guests even sporting the iconic Scottish kilt, including longstanding friend and client of Mills Selig, Iain Lundie from HCA Group. Iain joined his fellow Scot, and Mills Selig’s very own talented property consultant, Jayne Paterson, who together entertained guests by playfully highlighting the fundamental differences between Scotland and Northern Ireland, including our questionable love for Tayto crisps.

Formal proceedings were brought to a close by Anne Skeggs, Partner, Mills Selig who offered the traditional vote of thanks. Mills Selig’s clients, in high spirits, actively participated in the celebration, joining the festivities with enthusiasm. The communal spirit reached its peak when everyone came together to sing ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ a moving and symbolic moment that added an extra layer of meaning to the celebration.

Kirsten Magee, Partner, Mills Selig expressed her delight at the success of the event commenting, “We are thrilled to have hosted another successful Burns Supper. This is our third to date and will certainly be an evening to remember. The atmosphere was electric, and the participation by our guests was just the cherry on top.

“I am proud to bring our clients and friends together to celebrate a Scottish tradition, something which is a big part of my heritage, and that of many of our guests too.”

Titanic Hotel Belfast provided the perfect backdrop for Mills Selig’s Burns Night celebration. The historic venue’s ambiance, coupled with the warmth of the Scottish-themed event, created an evening that will be cherished by all who attended.
