The life and times of Scotland’s favourite poet will be celebrated Saturday, January 25 from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. at Guelph Civic Museum. Robbie Burns Day festivities will include music, highland dancing, spinning and weaving, calligraphy and traditional food (here’s a great chance to try haggis!).

Starting at 1:15 pm, the haggis will be piped in and Don Dewar will entertain with a presentation of Ode to a Haggis. At 2:30 pm, members of the award-winning Mary Ellen Cann School of Highland Dance will perform. Throughout the afternoon students from Riverside Celtic College will entertain with Scottish music. Ongoing demonstrations and displays by the Guelph Pipe Band, the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games, the Guelph Guild of Handweavers and Spinners, Calligraphy artist Debbie Thompson-Wilson, and the Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph will contribute to the Scottish flair of the day.

Admission is $4 Adults, $3 Seniors and Students, $10 Families. Free for Guelph Museums members.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street. For more information, call 519-836-1221 or visit guelph.ca/museum.
