What is Burns Night?

Burns night southam local pubBurns Night, also referred to as a ‘Burns Supper’ is a celebration of the life and work of Robert Burns; the famous author of many Scots poems. Roberts Burns was born on 25th January, and so Burns Night is usually celebrated on or near to that date. The first Burns Supper, however, was celebrated at Burns Cottage, on the 21st July, 1801 (the fifth anniversary of Robert Burns’ death).

Burns Nights and Suppers are most common in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but over recent years there has been a surge in Burns Suppers in the UK, outside of just Scottish clubs and societies.
