Burns Soiree - Kirkcaldy Old Kirk - Thursday, January 25 - 7.30pm

Kirkcaldy Old Kirk will host an informal celebration of Scotland’s national bard this month.

The Old Kirk will host the informal celebration of Robert Burns with songs, music, poetry and laughter in Kirkcaldy Old Kirk on Thursday, January 25 at 7.30pm. Entry is free but donations are appreciated. The original idea of an informal Burns Soiree came from the late David Potter, Kirkcaldy author, historian and community stalwart, who loved Burns' poetry and compered the first few evenings in this style.
