Additional entertainment will include To a Mouse, a poem by Burns, delivered by local Burns’ scholar, George St. Clair, and Scottish songs sung by opera trained Tamara Tucker.

    Hi, I am very interested in attending your Burns Night Celebration.
    I’m a little confused as your website gives 2 dates as deadline, Jan 18th and Jan 22nd, so I’m trying to confirm that this is still possible.
    My husband and I are both Scottish, in fact my husband is from Ayr and was born just down the road from the Burns Cottage.
    We would be a party of between 2 and 4 depending on some conflicting schedules.
    Can you please email me the details and let me know how we purchase tickets.
    Many thanks,
    Margaret Moodie
