Newton Stewart DG8 6BT


Concessions available for under 25's and Over 65's only.

Celebrating the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns with live music and songs from the fantastic Rose Byers.

Burns moved to Dumfries & Galloway in 1788 to take over Ellisland Farm near Dumfries, which is now a museum, before moving to Dumfries to work as an excise officer.

There'll be music performances from the Jones family and we're delighted to be welcoming back the fabulous Rose Byers who will also be performing on the night.

If you have some Burns to recite, you'll be made most welcome or simply come along and enjoy the entertainment and celebrate our National poet.
