Top 10 Burns Night shindigs in London and Edinburgh

Clandestine Curling Competition at Happiness Forgets

Rather than something you do to your hair before a big night out, curling is essentially boulles on ice where players have to slide giant stones into circular targets. The quirky sport was invented on frozen lochs in medieval Scotland, with the first written reference to it coming from the records of Paisley Abbey in Renfrewshire in February 1541.

Popular during his lifetime, Burns referenced curling in his poem Tam Samson’s Elegy. If you fancy giving it a go then head down to über cool cocktail bar Happiness Forgets in Hotxon between 12-4pm on 29 February where a ‘clandestine curling competition’ will be put on by Hendrick’s gin. Rather than on ice, the tournament will take place on the bar, where 24 mixologists will battle it out in a miniature version of the game.
