Robert Burns and Burns' Night
Back

Regular readers of this website will know that towards the end of January each year your Webmaster team struggles to find content to commemorate the anniversary of the birth of the Bard, Rabbie Burns, on 25th January 1759. Many of you may of course celebrate by attending a Burns' night dinner or supper.

******

Every year we try to be a little more ambitious. In addition to viewing new content this menu page also allows members to review the material that has been published in previous years.
