The 40th Anniversary Burns Supper

Saturday 27th January 2024

The venue for the Burns Supper is The Globe Inn in Dumfries, an establishment that was, in fact, Burns’ 'local’. It still has his favoured chair, his bed and a few other items from the period.

The Globe is now a fine dining establishment and our event will be held in the private dining room. The Committee feels that this adds due weight to such a milestone event in our history, and as such, tickets are priced at £55 each. We have lined up some excellent speakers to cover the usual items featured at a Burns Supper. Details will be confirmed soon.

We would like to include a visit to Robert Burns’ Mausoleum and possibly, if there’s time, a visit to Willie Nicolson’s grave down in Borgue. As you may know, Nicolson was a piper and a poet, and Gordon Mooney wrote a great article about him in the June 1998 edition of Common Stock: click here to view the article.

The Globe is not a hotel, however, but Dumfries has plenty of accommodation options.

A ‘Burns Tour’ of The Globe can be had for an extra £10.
