What is Burns Night?

Burns Night is the celebration of Robert Burns, the author of many Scottish poems and Auld Lang Syne which is traditionally sung on New Year’s Eve.

The tradition goes back more than 200 years. The first Burns supper was held at Burns Cottage in Alloway, South Aryshire, on 21 July 1801 on the fifth anniversary of Burns’ death. Since then the gatherings have been held on or around his birthday on 25 January.
