Probably Scotland's most famous agricultural worker also did some writting on the side!

So join the University of Glasgow's Centre for Robert Burns Studies and The Dear Green Bothy from 5-7pm on 23rd January as they celebrate the new Advanced Research Centre's (ARC's) first Burns Night.

 They'll be exploring some of our shared interests with talks and performance exploring ways in which the Scottish National Bard, Robert Burns (1759-1796), engaged with the environment in his life and work.

They will be joined on the evening by award-winning singer and song leader Robyn Stapleton who will perform from her wonderful repertoire of Burns song, and Professor Nigel Leask, author of Robert Burns and Pastoral: Poetry and Improvement in Eighteenth Century Scotland (Oxford University Press, 2010) - awarded Saltire Research Book of the Year - and editor of Burns's Commonplace Books, Tour Journals and Miscellaneous Prose (2014) for the new Oxford University Press edition of 'The Works of Robert Burns'.
