#ScotlandHour Wednesday 27 January 2016 9-10pm – ‘Burns’

#ScotlandHour Wed 27th January 2016 9-10pm – ‘Burns’

#ScotlandHour is delighted to join forces with www.scotland.org/whats-on/burns-night/ to celebrate our national poet Robert Burns. Find out about his poetry, Scottish traditions including traditional food and drink and join with others across the globe as they celebrate with a traditional ‘Burns Supper’.

We will be joined on Wednesday 27th at 9pm by co-hosts, @BigBurnsSupper,  @ScotStoryCentre and @AboutScotland who’d like everyone to share their Burns selfies tagging them with #burnsie.

(After Queen Victoria and Christopher Columbus, there are more Burns Statues in the world than of any other non-religious figure.  This is where the idea for people to take a ‘Burnsie’ came from – a picture with your nearest Burns statue or simply of you doing something ‘Burns’ related for example tucking into a dish of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties or enjoying a dram. These are going to be made into a huge collage to be revealed on Burns night – so why not get involved and upload your images by 24th January.  Or use #Burnsnight for more general photos of your celebrations.)

We know that the #ScotlandHour community will rise to the challenge of sharing brilliant Burns themed tips whilst also including 2 tags.
