With annual and traditional celebrations being almost here, we are having a look at some different approaches to commemorate the life and art of Scottish biggest poet Robert Burns. They are all free and taking place in Rose Street in Edinburgh. Happy Burns Night!
In The Words of the Bard
The Rose Street has been decorated with Bard’s most loved quotes. Have fun to find them!
Bairns Burns Trail
6 Rabbie Burns inspired pictures have been hidden around Rose Street. Find them and write down what poem they represent.
For our younger bairns, find the letter in each picture and what does it spell?
Handy guides can be picked up from the pop-up Burns Bothy at 116b Rose Street.
Celebrate Robert Burns’ life and work together with local musicians. They decorate the length of Rose St with the sounds of Burns and Scotland inspired tales. Entertaining audiences are traditional Scottish musicians: Tina Avery, Richard Jenkins, Calum Baird, Aaron Wright, Puddin n Mash, Euan Fleming, Erin & Briony and Greg Aiken.
Wee ones will be encouraged to sing and create music together in a friendly, supportive environment, learning a classic Burns lament. This is unticketed, free and drop in – first come, first served.
