Maybole Community Council has produced a book and DVD
of the year-long events and celebrations of the Robert Burns ...
where it all began project. The book has 72 pages of full colour photographs of
the project “Robert Burns…where it began” including the re-enactment of
the first meeting of Burns’ parents, William Burnes and Agnes Broun,
at a market fair in Maybole in 1756 and the re-enactment of their
wedding in the town on 15th December 1757. All the other events are
included, too, especially Maybole Gala.
The DVD, available in both PAL and NTSC formats, lasts about an hour
and a half and also includes the same events. These will be a
lasting legacy of the town’s connections with Burns and provide some
great memories for everyone who took part. Information on ordering
the book and DVD is given below. Click on the images
