Centre for Scottish Studies

A Robert Burns Virtual Celebration

January 12, 2022

Join us and ScotFestBC for A Robert Burns Virtual Celebration on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at 7 PM PT.  

Enjoy piping, poetry, songs and fun—just the way Scotland’s national poet liked it—from the comfort of your home.

We’ll have some special performers to lead us through the virtual Ceilidh, including world-champion SFU piper Dr. Jack Lee.

Professor Leith Davis, our Centre's director, will share historical tales about Burns, and her SFU English students will perform Burns' poetry and songs.

Attendees will have the chance to win prizes from Tartantown, Macaloney’s Caledonian Distillery, and The British Store.

ScotFestBC executive director Mike Chisholm will host this online event

Admission is $5. You can purchase tickets via Eventbrite.

Once signed up, you’ll receive an email before the event with a Zoom access code.

Donations to ScotFestBC are welcome through Eventbrite. Proceeds support The British Columbia Highland Games, which run annually at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam. This year’s festivities are scheduled to take place on June 17 and 18.
