St Andrews Burns Club

Founded 1869

St Andrews Burns Club has a notable history.    It is one of the oldest Burns Clubs in the world and was founded in 1869.  It is number 13 in The Robert Burns World Federation which itself was founded in 1885.  Like other clubs our aim is to encourage the enjoyment of the works of Robert Burns.  We do this by running a series of school competitions.


Joelle Millar was the St Andrews Day Piper for the year.  Unfortunately because our Supper was cancelled she could not pick up her prize earlier.  She collected her prize when she performed at the unveiling of The Plaque in South Street.

The annual Burns Supper due to be held on 22 January 2022 has been cancelled because of the Covid pandemic. 

Last year’s virtual Burns Supper is still available below.  


The next Burns Supper is planned for 28 January 2023.
