The team at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum will be turning back the clock and offering live music, entertainment and a pub quiz as part of the authentic transformation. Staff and volunteers from the museum will even be dressed up as regulars of the period to add to the experience.

The evening will begin with a drinks reception where wine, soft drinks and award winning locally brewed beer will be available.
