The World of Burns Online with Future Museum

East Ayrshire Leisure is celebrating all things Burns, albeit it a little differently this year, as the Bard goes digital. In the lead up to Burns Night on Monday 25 January, East Ayrshire Leisure is sharing some interesting and unusual artefacts relating to Robert Burns on online   - www.futuremuseum.co.uk

Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Bard, lived in Mauchline in what was arguably his most creative and productive period as a writer. It was at his farm in Mossgiel, close to the town, that he composed many of his best-loved poems. Whilst preparing for their move to Ellisland Farm in Dumfriesshire, Burns and his wife Jean Armour lodged in a room in what is now Burns House Museum (pictured above)

Visit futuremuseum.co.uk to view the special collection dedicated to our national Bard. It contains poems, books, magazines, letters, paintings, pictures Mauchline Ware and some other surprising artefacts related to the day to day life of Robert Burns.  You will get lost in a world steeped in history and poetry that will lead you into the extraordinary, and sometimes scandalous, life of Robert Burns.

You can also catch snippets on Burns including ‘Bitesized Burns’ and ‘Create at Home’ art activities, every day on the Dick Institute Facebook page and Twitter accounts so give them a follow to get involved.
