It's a big weekend for the Caledonian Society of Bermuda!
Not only are we hosting our Annual Burns Supper on Saturday night but there is also something exciting happening back in Scotland that same evening. Attendees of last year's Burns Supper will remember the film crew at our event last year, shooting footage for an upcoming BBC documentary about Burns Suppers being held in four different parts of the world. The Commonwealth of Burns will finally be shown on Saturday night at 9.30pm on BBC2. You can watch a short preview at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01pfbj5.
