We will stick firmly to the Scottish tradition when on Rabbie Burns day people in Scotland cite the touching poems of the Ploughman Poet, play the bagpipes, drink some good whiskey and share the Haggis.
The event will be marked with the special participation of a talented Bagpiper.
Those of you, who are Scottish, feel Scottish or just like to share a night of poetry, good whiskey and great food, are more than welcome to join the bash!
It is Ksh 3000/= per person including a 4 course Traditional Scottish Dinner & Wine.
Any volunteer of you who would like to cite a favourite Robert Burns poem will be highly encouraged to do so!
We have come up with a great Flying package for the occasion that Nairobi friends can join us for the occasion.

David Stopps started his career as promoter of the famous Friars Club in Aylesbury, Bucks. From 1969-84 he presented many well known people, notably David Bowie, U2, Genesis, The Kinks, Blondie, The Police, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Jam, Kraftwerk, The Ramones and The Clash amongst many others. In 2009 he successfully re-opened the Friars Club after a break of 25 years – with over 90,000 members it is the largest music club in Europe.
In 1982, he went into management originally managing Marillion and then Howard Jones and later still The Fat Lady Sings. These days he still manages Howard Jones who continues to make albums and tours and who has now sold in excess of 8 million albums worldwide. He also manages Miriam Stockley who, as the featured singer with Adiemus, has sold in excess of 3 million albums. Together with his business partner, Joseph Stopps, he also manages dance mash-up mavericks, The Young Punx, and Italian multi-genre dance genius, Phonat. He is often on tour and completed extensive tours of the USA, UK, Japan and Australia in 2008/9.
David is Director of Copyright and Related Rights for the Music Managers Forum UK. He is also a member of the British Copyright Council and from 2002 to 2010 was the United Nations representative for The International Music Managers Forum at WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organisation) in Geneva. At WIPO he represented all featured artists worldwide concerning new international treaty negotiation in the field of copyright and related rights. He is also a member of the Performer Board and the Main Board of UK related rights collection society PPL which is the biggest neighbouring rights collective management organisation in the world. He is the author of the book “How to make a Living from Music’ which is published by the United Nations. Commissioned by WIPO, the book is mainly targeted at the developing world but is equally useful in developed countries.
David is also a Consultant and an Educator and has presented a series of international workshops mainly for musical authors, performers, managers, governments and collective management organisations, but also for telcoms, brands and any organisation interested in expanding their business using music. He has presented workshops in Jamaica, Barbados, Canada, Belgium, UK, New Zealand, South Africa, The Netherlands, Kenya, Brazil, Thailand, Antigua and Indonesia.
In May 2008 he received the MMF Roll of Honour award in London.
In 2010 he became a director of software company, 3DiCD Media, which intends to revolutionise the way music is marketed in the on-line environment.
