Haggis will be on the menu as Invercargill gets set to welcome in the new year.

St Andrew's Scottish Society Southland is hosting its Hogmanay festivities, taking the form of an old-time dance, at the Scottish Hall in Esk St on New Year's Eve.

Hogmanay is a traditional Scottish festival, now celebrated by people across the globe with celtic ancestry to welcome in the new year.

Society chief Barbara Swain said the event was a good opportunity for Southlanders who enjoyed old-time dancing to celebrate the season, especially as traditional dances were not held as often as they used to be.

The family-friendly festival would include a live band, supper and, of course,the traditional haggis, she said.

Tickets, available at the door, cost $10, with celebrations beginning at 8pm.

The society, celebrating its 99th year, will host its Burns night at the Scottish Hall on January 25.
