St Andrew’s Night Dinner Dance


The St Andrew’s Night Dinner Dance, due to be held this year on Saturday, 19 November, is generally reckoned to be the best Scottish evening in town (Milan).

It will again be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in San Donato Milanese, chosen for its hospitality (including special rates for those who want to stay the night), accessibility by car and excellent (free) parking facilities. Not to mention its unbeatable wooden dance floor.

The menu always has a distinct Scottish slant. This year’s still has to be decided, but to give you an idea it could well be:


Scottish Smoked Salmon

Scotch Broth

Roast Venison

Roast Potatoes and Mixed Vegetables

Bramble Fool

White & Red Wine

Coffee and Malt Whisky

The real highlight of the evening is what follows: two to three hours of Scottish Country Dancing (reels and jigs) to live music played, as usual,

Michael Philip
Michael Philip

by Michael Philip (accordion) and Paul Clancy (keyboards), flown in directly from Scotland for the occasion, together with our own Colin Jamieson (drums). We hope to have a Scottish bagpiper as well.

Last but not least, by popular acclaim, we are bringing back Lewis Barlow, one of the world’s greatest close-up magicians (from Edinburgh). He will no doubt astound us all yet again.

All this for €80 per head.

Please book ASAP, and by 12 November at latest, through:
