8 places to celebrate Burns Night in Gloucestershire

While Gloucestershire might be over 200 miles from Scotland, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Burns Night on home turf, with SoGlos selecting eight places to revel in this Scottish tradition.

Banish the winter blues and raise a toast to Burns Night in Gloucestershire, with an array of events taking place across the county in celebration of the birth of famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns, on Thursday 25 January 2018.

With everything from six-course taster menus to a whisky masterclass, SoGlos has rounded up eight places to join in with the Scottish tradition this January.
