About Robert Burns

Robert Burns is widely considered to be the national poet of Scotland, writing poems and songs about everything from love to politics during the 1700s. A lyricist with a huge repertoire, he is best known for Auld Lang Syne – a poem that was turned into the song we still sing on New Year’s Eve each year. His words resonated so much with his followers that five years after his death, a group of Burns’ friends decided to host a Burns Supper to remember their dear friend. This meal was such a success that a Burns Club was soon formed and Burns Night celebrations became an annual occurrence, hosted on the poet’s birthday – 25 January – each year.

The most traditional Burns Night events follow a very specific order of rituals, poetry, food and toasts. After guests are greeted, the host makes a welcoming speech before a traditional Scottish thanksgiving grace is recited. A soup course is then served, before the haggis is brought into the dining room while someone recites a poem by Burns – Address to Haggis. The haggis is then served as the main course, typically along with Scottish stalwarts such as potato and leeks. Afterwards, there is dessert, cheese, coffee and a whole series of whisky toasts. The evening comes to an end with all guests singing Auld Lang Syne.
