Burns Night was celebrated at Epping Forest College with a special Scottish-themed supper and open mic evening.
Guests included students, staff and exhibitors at the Careers Fest event which was held at the Borders Lane college.
The traditional celebration of the life and work of the famous Scottish poet featured staff member Rosiland Gold who shared some of Burns' most well-known poems, such as ‘About a Mouse’, while Robert Burns' life story was read by Students’ Union members.
A meal of gammon, sausages and root vegetable stew was served to the guests.
College principal Saboohi Famili said: "We are delighted to have been able to celebrate Burns Night at the college. Staff and students took great interest in taking part and a great time was had by all.
"We value our inclusive and welcoming approach to raise awareness of cultural diversity and are proud to see the level of enthusiasm shown to engage in our enriched and exciting calendar of events."
