Are you looking for somewhere to celebrate Robert Burns Night?

It’s almost time to celebrate the bard’s birthday, and as whisky seamlessly intertwines with Robert Burns festivities, we’ve curated a list of the most exceptional events throughout the UK.

Save the date 

On the 25th of January, Scotland and beyond come together to honour the “bard,” the national poet Robert Burns. While this celebration holds worldwide recognition, it’s particularly renowned for traditional songs, poetry, dancing, and hearty food. It’s a time when even the commitment to dry January can be set aside, giving in to the indulgence of the “water of life”—whisky. And what better way to savour such spirits than in the exquisite Glencairn glass?

What do you do on Robert Burns night?

The observance of Burns Night typically entails a series of events, commencing with a robust supper at the centre, featuring the iconic haggis, neeps, and tatties—a dish celebrated in one of Robert Burns’ famous poems. Over a few glasses of whisky, toasts are commonly raised to Scotland, the delectable spread on the table, Robert Burns himself, and the nation’s beloved drink, whisky. What once was a celebration confined to Scotland has now transcended borders, with Burns events springing up all over the UK and beyond.
