Le Haggis at The Big Burns Supper

The Big Burns Supper is a 9 day festival in Dumfries of "music, theatre, comedy and much more".

One of the highlights is "Le Haggis" - a cabaret style show featuring all of the above. I was fortunate enough last night to get in and was able to drag my friend Allan along with me

It was a huge amount of fun - not least when Allan was pulled up onto the stage, partially undressed and beaten with bunch of roses.

I have the photos and will be teasing him mercilessly for many months to come.

This blog isn't the place for posting those photos, however, here are a selection of others I took.

If you think the guy with the big sideburns looks familiar, I photographed him several times before when he was the lead singer with The Yahs

Feel free to click on any of them for slightly larger versions, or click through to an album on my photography Facebook page for several more images from the evening.

Hope - it was a lot of fun. I'll be keeping an eye out to see if they return with something similar next year :)

Guyana-Gyal - if you find your way over to Scotland, I'll show you the pics :)

The last one: those are never bare boobies?
I dread to think what you omitted!

Pat - not completely bare - there are little costume stars over the nipples :)
