January 24, 2021

Outdoor wintery forest scene. There is a person walking in the distance.

Travel to the Scottish town of Irvine from the comfort of your home and celebrate Robbie Burns Day online with the Irvine Burns Club. Explore the links between Robert Burns and John Galt through a virtual tour of the Wellwood Burns Museum and Burns-linked places in Irvine, along with a spirited rendering of his poem “Address to a Haggis” by Irvine Burns Club Directors and Members, including the President David Burns and North Ayrshire Council’s Provost Ian Clarkson.

“We treasure our links with the City of Guelph and will build on these as we mark the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Galt’s first novels. We were honoured to receive the invitation and wish the citizens of Guelph well in 2021”. – Bill Nolan, Irvine Burns Club Honorary Secretary and former President, Robert Burns World Federation.
