Burns Night

Tonight’s a special Burns Night – the people’s poet is 250 years old today. He was born on 25 January 1759 in a humble cottage near Ayr. His poems brought him fame, but not wealth. Burns loved to socialise; I’m sure he would have enjoyed the many Homecoming events planned for this year.
