The future of Burns Cottage!



Burns's Cottage has been here for over 250 years! But what will it look like in another 250 years? Why not come along and help us to imagine what the future holds for Burns’s home! The future is full of infinite possibilities; will the cottage be under water, a theme park, a nest for a pterodactyl or just not there at all?

We’re asking you to take up the challenge and show us what you think will have happened! But it won’t be quite the way of drawing you’d expect. There’s only one way to find out more, come and see us from the 14 to the 20 October.

If you can't come all the way to Alloway don't worry, you can still be involved! Download your very own Burns cottage template from this page, print it off and draw the future as you imagine it! We'd also love to see what you've created so email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or post to Facebook using #thebigburnsdraw.
