A crowd gathered in their tartan best for a Burns Night celebration, with an array of activities taking place with a musical backdrop.

Beforehand, revellers were asked to take their own plates and food so they could enjoy a bring-and-share supper.

Burns Night is celebrated in honour of Scottish poet, Robert Burns and renowned for its traditional menu, consisting of haggis and tattis with neeps, potatoes and swede.

The Ceilidh Band's caller, Alison Francis-Black said: "This is our first Burns Night and we were surprised with how many showed up.
