About Burns for Brunch

Hungover, perhaps, but not yet hung out to dry, Robert Burns awakes in Auld Reekie 2019 sharing his thoughts, poems and songs, casting a satiric eye around his Scotland and ours.

Well suppered and well scuppered, Rabbie reveals what it’s like to be transmogrified into a couthy wee household god. With nae moose aboot the hoose he wants to set the record straight and maybe tell us a few home truths along the way.

Will Creative Scotland give him a grant? And who’ll give him that shave he badly needs?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Burns for Brunch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
