The Rainbow Centre is inviting guests to dance the night away at their first event of the year, in honour of Scottish poet Robert Burns on Friday, January 27 at Fareham’s Ferneham Hall.

Organiser Kelle Russell said: ‘Ferneham Hall is a fantastic venue for our Burns Night as they have a fully licensed bar, lots of room for dancing and plenty of free parking spaces.’

On the night guests will be welcomed by piper, Richard Smith, of RS Bagpipes.
