The Heart and Soul of Scotland: The Life and Works of Robert Burns
Burn Night is an annual celebration of the life and work of Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, and lyricist who is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland. The event is held on January 25th, which is the poet’s birthday and is a traditional Scottish holiday that commemorates the poet and his work.
Burns is celebrated for his contributions to Scottish culture and identity through his poetry and songs that celebrated the Scottish countryside, culture, and people. His work often featured themes of love, nature, and politics, and it was written in the Scottish dialect, making it accessible to a wide audience. He is also known for his contributions to traditional Scottish folk songs, many of which were collected and published in his lifetime.
The celebration of Burn Night typically includes a traditional Scottish meal, which often includes haggis, nips, and tatties (turnips and potatoes). The meal is accompanied by the recitation of Burns’ poetry and the playing of Scottish folk music. The highlight of the event is the “Address to the Haggis”, a poem written by Burns that is recited before the haggis is served.
We are thrilled to invite you to our upcoming Burn Night Festival, an annual celebration of the life and work of the renowned Scottish poet Robert Burns. The festival will take place on 25th January 2023 at Mr.Basrai’s World Cuisines Blackpool.
