MAUCHLINE is preparing for Robert Burns Day to celebrate the iconic Scots poet.

Now in its fifth year, Burns’ Birthday, the event celebrating the life of Robert Burns in Mauchline continues to grow, bringing together local communities and attracting more visitors to the area to celebrate our national bard.

Join in at Burns House Museum and Library Nancy Tinnocks on Saturday, Janury 25 between 12-4pm.

East Ayrshire Leisure said: “The highlight of our 2020 festival will be the performance by Mauchline Primary School who have been working with us over the last few months to create a wonderful celebratory performance exploring Burns’ relationship with coasts and waters through a collection of songs and poems from Scotland’s favourite bard.

“Suitable for the whole family, participation is completely FREE, there will be art workshops, Kirkyard tours, storytelling, performances and much more.”
