On the anniversary of the death of Robert Burns, we’ll be celebrating his works and his legacy in events at the house where he died in 1796 and through the town in locations connected with his funeral.

Enjoy tunes from award-winning piper Gregor Grierson as he performs outside the house through the afternoon, including in the new performance space in Burns’ Backyard.

Explore the house, including the writing room where Burns penned some of his best known works, and the room where he died.

Take a tour along the route of the funeral procession, from the Midsteeple and ending in St Michael’s Churchyard, with a chance to step inside the mausoleum where Burns was later reburied in 1815. Free guided tours start at the Midsteeple on Dumfries High Street at 2pm and 3.30pm.

Events at the house run from 2pm to 4.30pm, house open 2-5pm. All of the activities are free of charge.
