Robert Burns

Robert Burns detailed on a pub sign found at Sunbury Antiques Market, Kempton.

Here’s a bottle and an honest friend!
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o’care,man?

In time-honoured form across the land there will be formal gatherings of scholars and informal meetings of friends who will celebrate with a Burns Night Supper which includes the eating of a traditional Scottish meal of Haggis or a haunch of venison, the drinking of Scotch Whisky and the reading of words by Burns.
