Burns Unbroke is a new contemporary multi-arts festival offering diverse creative response to Burns.
The title of Burns Unbroke was inspired by the epigram which prefixed Robert Burns’s first publication in 1786:
The simple Bard, unbroke by rules of art,
He pours the wild effusions of the heart;
And if inspir’d ’tis Nature’s pow’rs inspire;
Her’s all the melting thrill, and her’s the kindling fire
The exhibitions will be open to the public every day (except Mondays), 11.00am – 6.00pm, throughout the six weeks and entry is free. There will be a programme of artists’ talks and other events from 26 January – 10 March 2018.
