As part of our ‘Arts For All, All Year Round’ philosophy, we launched our very first Burns For Bairns celebration on 26th January 2019.
We were delighted to be joined at this free event by lots of excited children, parents and grannies and papa’s too!
Everyone enjoyed a wee taste of Burns, including; our new commission of 10 major paintings by Nichol Wheatley depicting Burns’ epic poem Tam O’Shanter, a superb rendition of Tam O’Shanter by Marie-Clair McGuiness and some tasty Haggis, Neeps and Tatties
The day culminated with some amazing singing and readings of Burns poetry by local school children.
Our plan is to make this an annual event, bringing Burns to a new generation, so watch this space!
