18.45 to 19.15 - Piper plays as guests arrive and gather

19.25 - Piper plays Dinner Call for guests to stand by their seats

19.30 - Top Table piped in

Selkirk Grace followed by first course, usually Cock a Leekie soup

After soup is cleared, the Haggis Party is lead in by the piper and they march round the room to end up at specific point which would normally be a separate table adorned with three small glasses of whisky

The piper stands to one side while the Head Chef lays the Haggis down and then stands on the other side of the table while the person addressing the haggis takes centre stage to do his bit

After addressing the Haggis he gives the piper and Chef their drams and all in the room raise their glasses for the Gaelic Toast 'Slainte Mhas'
Phonetically - Slanshay Var

The piper then strikes up, the chef picks up the dead haggis and they then march back to the kitchen for its dissection

At suitable points during the evening perhaps a bagpipe tune or two and also one or two more of Burns Poems

Address to the Ladies - given by one of the gentlemen guests

Address to the Gentlemen - given by one of the lady guests

After the final set of bagpipe tunes the piper marches to the Guest of Honour to a receive a quaich of (faux) whisky. Piper pulls in his feet, salutes, receives the quaich with thanks, raises it and gives "Here's Health to the King" in gaelic "Deoch Slainte D'on Righ" Piper returns the Quaich and marches out of the room.
Just before he reaches the door, the senior officer says (in this case) "Goodnight Pipe Major" who then replies "Goodnight Sir"
