Should Auld Acquaintance be Forgot - Burns Night

As a creative maker, we celebrate all artists here at Gamesby.

Robert Burns was a Scottish poet, and boy did he make history.

Auld Lang Syne was written by Robert Burns in 1788, written in Scottish language and origin of the traditional folk song. Known globally as the song that bids farewell to the old year.

“Auld Lang Syne” can be translated to “old long since” “long long ago” “days gone by” or “old times” and loosely translated to “for the sake of old times”.

Burns Night, also known as Burns Supper is an annual celebration held on the 25th January, Robert Burns birthday. This night is to celebrate the life, work and spirit of the legendary Scottish poet.

It is an informal party to revel in Scottish food and whisky whilst reciting the work of the bard.
