The first supper was held in memoriam at Burns Cottage by Burns' friends, on 21 July 1801, the fifth anniversary of his death; it has been a regular occurrence ever since.
The first Burns Club was founded in Greenock in 1801 by merchants who were born in Ayrshire, some of whom had known Burns. They held the first Burns supper in 1802 on what they thought was his birthday, 29 January, but in 1803, they discovered the Ayr parish records that noted his date of birth was actually 25 January 1759.
For more than 200 years since, Burns suppers have been held on or around 25 January.

Who was Robert Burns?
Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns is one of the most influential writers in Scotland’s long literary history, whose romantic songs, traditional ballads and amusing satires have become ingrained in Scottish culture.
He’s affectionately known by many names including Rabbie Burns, the National Bard, the Bard of Ayrshire and the Ploughman Poet, but regardless of his title he remains one of the greatest cultural icons in the Scotland’s history.
One of his most famous works is Auld Lang Syne, sung around the world on New Years Eve.
Burns is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement, and after his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism, and a cultural icon in Scotland and among Scots around the world.
