Celebrating Burns in ‘Little’ Scotland

Corby is famous for its Scottish heritage based on decades of incoming steel workers and was for a time known locally as “Little Scotland”.

So it is, that every Lodge celebrates Burns Night with their members and the large number of visitors who descend on the Complex to enjoy the Haggis, Neeps & Tatties along with the warm fellowship offered by every Lodge.

Thistle & Rose #6644 , the first lodge to be given their charter in Corby, attracts many visitors and celebrate along with the food, the Music and Poems of Rabbie Burns. The other Lodges have this year and in years past also gone all out to celebrate in proper fashion the evening.
