Next Event... Haggis Hoolie, Alloway 1759

20 Jan 2017

The Burns an’ a’ that Festival! is proud to celebrate its sixteenth anniversary and Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology in Ayrshire in 2016.

The year begins with Alloway 1759. This event is part of Scotland‘s Winter Festivals and takes place around Burns Night in January. The 2017 festival will include the brand new Burns Alicht, The Robert Burns Humanitarian Awards and Burns Big Birthday Bash plus the only Burns Supper in the world to take place in Burns Cottage where it all began.

The Charming Month of May is home to Burnsfest (Sat 6 May) our headline live music festival with FREE live music and attractions for all of the family. A month long fringe programme of events also boasts a series of Burns landmark events throughout weekends and dates in May.

The Burns an’ a’ that Festival! continues to be supported by South Ayrshire Council and Event Scotland as a major festival date in Scotland’s event calendar.

The last 16 years have seen many changes but the heart of the Festival will always be about our very own Robert Burns. An inspiration to millions worldwide we are proud to celebrate the man, his music, his legacy...
