“The Big Burns Supper is a fantastic event and a fitting celebration of the country’s national Bard.” Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland After a barnstorming 2016 from the heart of Scotland and the place where its most infamous poet, Robert Burns, spent his final years; where whisky and poetry combines in perfect accord and the room shakes with celebration from the rafters to the floor, the new ten-day format festival in Dumfries runs from the 20th – 29th January and will entertain an anticipated 30,000 attendees, with the popularity of previous years seeing the festival being increased in length to ten days. Supported by Scotland’s Winter Festivals, this year’s festival promises a huge range of entertainment to suit all tastes, with Headliners including the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Charlie Landsborough, Lulu, King Cresote, Seth Lakeman, Nicola Benedetti, Hackney Colliery Band, Eddi Reader, Peatbog Faeries, Skerryvore and Dervish.
