Robert Burns Scottish Festival

19 May - 21 May 2017
Robert Burns Scottish Festival

The Robert Burns Scottish Festival, held 19-21 May 2017, is a fine weekend of music, dance and poetry celebrating Camperdown’s unique link to Robert Burns.

The oldest outdoor Burns statue in the world sits in Camperdown. How did this come to pass? Find out as we celebrate all things Scottish with piping, highland dancing, poetry, haggis and whisky.

Sit back and take in the atmosphere of live music in the historic court house and theatre, watch the highland dancing competitions, or experience the haunting sound of the bagpipes. There is plenty more to see and do. Art exhibitions, heritage displays, clock tower climbs, lectures, stories and workshops, jamming, busking and markets.

Featuring: Fiona Ross, The Likely Celts, Tolka, Duck Duck Goose, Siobhan Owen, Chris Duncan & Catherine Strutt, Satch Campbell, Vivien Hamilton, Don Grieve & Angela Preiss, Warrnambool Pipes & Drums, Tuniversal, John McCorsen, Melbourne Scottish Fiddle Club
