Held on the anniversary of Burns’ birth, the celebrations were originally started by his close friends a few years after his death and now Burns Night is celebrated across the world each year. Burns’ life and works are commemorated with songs, recitals and tributes and a hearty feast at the traditional Burns Supper.

Why not celebrate Burns Night with a spectacular Burns Supper in Stirling Castle’s magnificent 16th century hall?  The four-course gala dinner will include haggis, whisky, singing, dancing and much laughter in the castle’s historic setting.   Following the supper, guests will be kept entertained with Scottish music, recitals of Burns poetry and excellent speakers.  Tables are available for up to 10 guests.
