£15 with a dram and nibbles

Burns needs no introduction, but William McGonagall was born in Edinburgh in 1825, and a resident of Dundee for most of his life. William McGonagall has long been regarded as ‘the worst poet in the history of the English language’. We know Mr and Mrs Reid of Lauriston Castle were fans! Join our host Scots actor Jock Ferguson for an evening of anecdotes and stories and a wee dram in between!
