Waimate Scottish Society - Burn's Night Concert

27th Jan 2018 8:00pm-11:00pm at Waimate High School Hall

Born in 1759 to a farming family in the town of Alloway, Robert Burns aka Rabbie Burns has grown to become one of the country’s most iconic literary figures and Scotland’s most revered national poet.

He wrote his first poem aged 15, and by his mid-twenties had gained a reputation for his pioneering views on politics, religion and class-inequalities.

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.

Come and enjoy the entertainment and festivity that is on offer to celebrate Burn's life.

All welcome.
