robbie-burns-day

As important areas of settlement for Scots in Canada, Victoria and Vancouver have had a long tradition of celebrating Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns,” says McCullough. “However, how Burns has been celebrated has changed over time. We’ll explore the new ways in which we celebrate Scotland’s most famous poet and lyricist, within the context of B.C.’s multicultural history.”

A procession of the haggis will start in the Mezzanine at 11am, followed by the address and sampling. Then at 12 Noon, there is an open invitation to join Surrey Poet Laureate Renee Saklikar’s Burns poetry recital, also in the Mezzanine.”

  • Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 2017
