JP Fell Robert Burns Celebration Night

Jan 24, 2004

By Catherine Barr


It's an annual event that never fails to impress. North Van's JP Fell Armouries was the place to find bagpipers, drummers, scotch and haggis last weekend as local dignitaries, guests and friends came to toast the Scottish Baird himself, Robert Burns. A celebration like no other, the occasion calls for dancing and revelry in honour of the "ploughman poet" whose immortal words are still echoed in our conversations to this day.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

The Clansmen Pipe and Drums always start off the evening with a bang.
Wearing his clan's tartan, piping student Richard Thompson greeted guests at the door.
Waiting to pipe in the head table were pipers Allan McMordie (left) and Steven Johnston. Allan also delivered the "Immortal Memory" speech.
A black tie affair to remember. Carlotta Ritchie and Alex Downie looked fab in their formals.

Bring in the beast. The pipin' o' the haggis was the duty of Rob Thompson (left) and Dennis Friesen.
