Residents and staff at a Swaffham nursing home celebrated Burns Night in style with a visit from piper Dave Harper.
Mr Harper played at Meadow House and wore a full piper's uniform, including heavyweight kilt.
Music was played, Mr Burns' famous poetry was recited and everyone joined in to sing Auld Lang Syne.
People enjoyed a spread of traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties, Scotch eggs and more, which was laid on by the staff at the home.
Maria Seitan, manager of Meadow House, said: 'Everyone had an amazing time.
