  • His Life

  • Five years after Robert Burns died, a group of his friends got together to remember him and his poetry. The tradition became established and now, every year on his birthday, 25th January, Scots all round the world celebrate Burns Night with a Burns Supper which follows a format similar to the original dinner (often with much toasting and drinking of whisky!) 

  • For the first time in more than 200 years, a Burns supper was held at the cottage where Scotland’s national bard was born. The very first Burns supper – including haggis, toasts to the poet and recitals of his work – was held by a group of his friends in the Alloway cottage in 1801, five years after his death
