The name "Big Burns Supper" refers to the festival’s 3 day duration
Burns Night weekend, when the birth and work of Scotland’s
Robert Burns is celebrated across the world at
gatherings known as Burns suppers. The festival itself is inspired by
the life and work of the poet, who is buried in Dumfries, and the
festival actively encourages new and innovative artists to
participate.  Performances and events do not have to relate to the
work of Robert Burns.
The 2012 festival took place on 27 -28 January and featured artists
including Eddi Reader, Frisky & Mannish and Finding Albert. The
2013 festival will run for 3 days from 25 - 28 January
