A TARTAN army invaded the Foakes Hall in Dunmow on Friday as guests enjoyed a traditional Scottish night out.

The Burns Night celebration was held in memory of the Scottish poet Robert Burns who is widely regarded as being the national poet of Scotland.

For supper, guests were treated to Haggis with neeps (yellow turnips) and of course some tatties and Bob Dobney played Celtic music on the bagpipes.
