Discover Burns Festival United Kingdom

No trip to Scotland would be complete without mention - or lecture - about Robert Burns. Despite his death in 1796, a significant part of the country's cultural life still orients around the internationally-acclaimed poet, whose rags-to-revolution story is now the stuff of legend. For one weekend every May, in tribute to Scotland's 'National Bard', the poet's hometown of Ayrshire plays host to the Burns an' a' that! Festival, showcasing an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary; from up-and-coming musicians to food market stalls.
