But that is exactly what happened to people in Melton Constable, near Fakenham, today.

Wells-based bagpiper James Jagger, 21, treated customers of M&M Rutland family butchers to a live show to get people in the mood for Burns Night.

The butchers is raising money for the East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH) at Quidenham by selling their recently-created Luxury Homemade Norfolk Haggis and Norfolk Whisky Sausage, using whisky from The English Whisky Company at Roudham, near Thetford.

For every pound of sausages sold, £1 will be donated to the charity.

The sausages are available permanently from M&M Rutland family butchers, who put on free haggis tastings during today’s bagpipe performance.

James Rutland, from M&M Rutland, said: “We asked James along to perform or us for a bit of fun and its been brilliant.

“He’s certainly turned a few heads and got a few more people coming through the door.”

Mr Jagger said: “A butchers is an unusual place to play in but I get on really well with the Rutlands and was delighted to come here and do it.”
