Burns Night is a time when admirers of one of Ayrshire's favourite sons come together to celebrate the poet's legacy and life.

Robert Burns is widely recognised across Scotland and the world for his iconic works which cover everything from Auld Lang Syne to Tam O'Shanter.

In 1759, he was born in the town of Alloway and spent much of his life espousing what were, at the time, radical political views and promoting the Scots language.

With Burns Suppers taking place up and down the region, here are some you can attend this year.
