Burns An' A' That! 2018

Next Event... Girvan Traditional Folk Festival, Burnsfringe

4th - 6th May

Burns an’ a’ that is proud to celebrate its seventeenth anniversary and Scotland’s Year of Young People in Ayrshire in 2018.

Each year begins with Alloway 1759. This event is part of Scotland‘s Winter Festivals and takes place around Burns Night in January. The 2018 festival included the brand new Burns Alicht, The Robert Burns Humanitarian Awards and Burns Big Birthday Bash plus the only Burns Supper in the world to take place in Burns Cottage where it all began.

The Charming Month of May is home to Burnsfest (Sat 5 May 2018) our headline live music festival with FREE live music and attractions for all of the family. A month long Burnsfringe programme of events also boasts a series of Burns landmark events throughout weekends and dates in May.

Burns an’ a’ that continues to be supported by South Ayrshire Council and Event Scotland within Scotland’s event & festivals calendar.

The last 17 years have seen many changes but the heart of the Festival will always be about our very own Robert Burns. An inspiration to millions worldwide we are proud to celebrate the man, his music, his legacy...
