Voice Technologies Sponsors World’s Biggest Online Burns Supper

Voice Technologies is a Red Rose Sponsor of World’s Biggest Online Burns Supper.

Posted on January 15, 2021

Voice Technologies is delighted to announce it is sponsoring World’s Biggest Burns. As a Red Rose Sponsor, we're supporting charity Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) as they host the world’s biggest virtual Burns supper.

The charity, which for the last 30 years typically welcomes up to 800 people to its annual ‘A Question of Burns’ event in Glasgow, raising over £1million as a result, is now set to take the festivities online. The digital event will be streamed globally and SBH Scotland hopes it will be the most watched Burns event in the world.

Although online, viewers can expect all the trimmings of a traditional Burns evening. The Address to a Haggis will feature alongside the main tribute to Burns, the Immortal Memory, recited by comedian Bruce Fummey.

Funny-man, and host of the event, Fred MacAulay, delivers the Toast to the Lassies as Janey Godley, who became a social media sensation after creating parody videos of First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon during lockdown, will then give the reply.

Travis front-man Fran Healy will perform Auld Lang Syne, while Scotland’s foremost Robert Burns re-enactor, Chris Tait, will recite Tam o’Shanter.

The virtual event is free to attend, with donations encouraged through the silent auction and raffle.

SBH Scotland’s 2021 Burns event will go live at 7pm on Monday 25 January 2021 on its YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/ScottishSpinaBifida and Facebook channel www.facebook.com/SBHScotland/. The pre-recorded programme will also be available to view for one week.
