Celebrate Burns Night 2018 with Retrotouch

Sunday, 21 January 2018  |  Amit

Get your kilts out. Burns night 2018 is just around the corner, and with it another chance to take part in an evening of haggis, poetry recitations, and whiskey fuelled tomfoolery. But if you're hosting this year's festivities, then the pressure is on to deliver a night to remember, however patchy your recollection may be.
You may be adept at producing a haggis, you may be well stocked in the alcohol department, but are you able to create the right mood? And are your surroundings impressive enough to make your guests leave with smiles on their faces? If the answer is anything other than a resounding yes, then listen up…
Retrotouch stocks an array of exciting electronic products that will ensure your Burns Night goes off without a hitch, unless that includes your kilt.
So here are some awesome household hacks that will help you make the most of this year's Burns Night.

Dimmer Switches

Setting the right mood is integral to a successful Burns Night. There's no greater mood spoiler than uncle Hamish producing a reading from Tam o' Shanter underneath a gaudy, fluorescent light bulb that illuminates only his clogged pores. A perfect evening is helped along by perfect lighting, and we have the right bit of kit for you.
Retrotouch's dimmer switch collection ranges from conventional dimmers, suitable for dimming LED bulbs, to state-of-the-art remote controlled dimmer switches that will make your home both comfortable and elegant.

One of the most exciting features of our range is the capability of many of our switches to be controlled manually. So if you're deep into a drinking game and don't want to get up from your chair, then experience the luxury of being able to control the mood of the room without even having to get up.


Bluetooth ceiling speakers

Another product that will help you host the best Burns Night party is our unique Bluetooth Ceiling speakers produced by sister company Lithe Audio. No doubt when the booze is flowing, music will be an essential feature of a successful night. Whether it's the Proclaimers or something more traditional, our fantastic all-in-one speakers are easily installed into your ceiling, and provide super rich audio from above.

But why speakers on the ceiling? Because of the errant dance moves of Aunt Maggie. Because no square inch of the floor is impervious to spontaneous chundering or drink spillages. Because it gives you that peace of mind, and also absolutely fantastic audio quality at the push of a button.


These are just a few suggestions for how you can improve your guests' Burns Night experience. But don't just take our word for it. If you're excited by our products, or even just mildly curious, please drop in to see us at one of our many trade show appearances.
