The Rio Club, 323 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3HW
It has been 8 years since the original Alternative Burns Supper.
‘Back then, we were the only ones doing this but since then the world has changed and the robots have came in to our country and taken our bards!
£5 entry includes free haggis, neaps and tatties plus a little dash of whisky. But this is not your traditional Burns affair, far from it.
Humans will do battle with robots,
rappers will battle poets,
guitarists will sing songs and comedians will tell jokes. ‘
The 2018 edition takes place in a brand new venue that officially launches in February, 2018.
Expect the unexpected
