A fun Surprise


It’s great to have you with us this evening for Cape Town Burns Night 2023. 

The event was officially a sell out so well done for snapping up your seats. 

The event is being managed by Africa Scotland Business Network’s team who are under the same management of leading Scottish South African owned event management and marketing company, Firecracker. See the events connection there?

Cape Town Burns Night is one of the most successful Burns Nights in the world, arguably due it’s modern and contemporary African twist on the traditional Burns Night format. Our approach to producing Burns Night has graced our event with guests from all over South Africa and the world.
