History

Dundee Burns Club was founded in 1860 by ‘Burnsians’ keen to promote the poetic works and democratic ideals and values of Scotland’s national bard.

The club was the driving force behind the erection of the statue to Robert Burns in Dundee’s Albert Square and has held an annual Burns Supper in Dundee every year since 1861.

The club is registered as Number 14 on the Roll of the Robert Burns World Federation and is one of the very few to maintain its own premises, with clubrooms in the centre of Dundee.
