Dumfries is set to play host to the worlds biggest Burns celebration
through a new national festival aimed at attracting international and
domestic visitors to the town in January 2012.

Festival organisers of the Big Burns Supper presented their vision to the
public at The Robert Burns Film Centre on Tuesday which is supported from
the likes of First Minister, Alex Salmond, and political leaders
throughout Scotland.

Throughout the weekend of the 27th - 28th January 2012, the festival team
hope to throw the biggest party the town has ever seen by presenting a
variety of performances for the entire community including a wide variety
of venues, pubs, cafes and public spaces, and they are looking to the
people of Dumfries to stand up and show the rest of Scotland what we can
do.
