A new contemporary multi-arts festival offering diverse creative responses to Burns.


Burns Unbroke is a new contemporary multi-arts festival offering diverse creative responses to Robert Burns. Featuring over 30 visual artists, an Alternative Burns Night, a Flyting competition, a tailor made programme of music as well as children’s performance and workshops as well as a series of Whisky Masterclasses with Arran Whisky.

 

The title of Burns Unbroke was inspired by the epigram which prefixed Robert Burns’s first publication in 1786.

The simple Bard, unbroke by rules of art,
He pours the wild effusions of the heart;
And if inspir’d ’tis Nature’s pow’rs inspire;
Her’s all the melting thrill, and her’s the kindling fire.
