Burns Supper
24 - 26 January 2014: Burns Night Big Scottish Ceilidh at the Gillie Dhu Edinburgh

Celebrated annually on Robert Burns’ birthday, 25 January, Burns Night gathers Scots around the world to pay tribute to the great poet’s life and works, and to Scottish culture.

Marking the culmination of Scotland's Winter Festivals, the event is marked by a jam-packed programme of celebrations across the country. There will be haggis eating, ceilidh dancing, songs and poetry and more, but most importantly – good company and loads of fun.


Robert Burns

During his short 37-year-old lifetime, he penned many works including Auld Lang Syne, Tam O'Shanter and A Red, Red Rose to name just a few, and the legacy he left behind has had a profound effect on future generations around the world ever since, and continues to inspire and influence contemporary artists over 250 years after his birth.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o'kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
  Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
  Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there's a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.
