Robert Burns – The Curly Heided Swan

05/01/2022 @ 08:00 - 17:00

Enter the ballot for a celebration of Rabbie Burns.

On Wednesday 26th January 2022 we will be celebrating the Scottish poet, Robert Burns, with Scotsman Des Hannigan, through stories and verses and a recital of the bard’s famous narrative poem ‘Tam o’ Shanter’.

Poet of the people and the pastoral, Burns merged a liberal, humane approach to life, salted with realism and romanticism, and more than a hint of bad behaviour. In Tam o’ Shanter, he spins the glorious, cautionary tale of the drunken farmer Tam and his grey mare Meg as they become entangled with witches and warlocks during a night of wild weather – a tale without a tail…

The event will take place in the Reading Room on Wednesday 26th January 2022 at 2pm. Numbers will be limited, windows open, and mask wearing encouraged.

We will allocate tickets by a ballot system. Please register your interest in attending by 18th January 2022. We will then draw out names and let you know if you have been successful.

£5 suggested donation; refreshments served afterwards.
