Scotland’s largest contemporary Burns celebration joins forces with Scotland’s much loved comic hero of 2020, Janey Godley as Big Burns Supper goes digital for 2021. Marking the festival’s 10th anniversary, Janey Godley’s Big Burns Supper dishes up a very special broadcast connecting Scotland to the world with contributions from local, national and international artists to help celebrate Burns Night in a way that helps give everyone a much-needed lift and a laugh.
Broadcast free of charge across Big Burns Supper’s Facebook and YouTube channels, the special 75-minute digital broadcast on January 25th 2021 sees Janey (in her own very special style obviously) welcome back a cracking selection of artists including – KT Tunstall, Dougie Maclean, Donovan, Tide Lines and Skerryvore who have performed at the festival over the last ten years. As staying in is the new eh, going out, Janey will host from her own living room as she prepares a Burns Supper while introducing guests and festival friends throughout the evening.
Of course, no Burns Supper would be complete without a bit of haggis. As festival audiences know though, Big Burns Supper doesn’t really do haggis, we do love a healthy helping of Le Haggis! The Dumfries-born Celtic cabaret, which provides the frantic heart of the festival, offers up an incredible specially curated set of artistic collaborations from Le Haggis acts past and present, featuring local and international talent – all of course with a unique Le Haggis twist. 2021 artists involved include – Artistic Director of Birds of Paradise Theatre Company, Robert Softley, comedian Ray Bradshaw, Jamaican World Roots Reggae singer Brina, burlesque starlet Vicky Butterfly and Scottish Hollyoaks star, Amy Conachan plus a few guaranteed surprises on the night.
Janey Godley’s Big Burns Supper 2021 will be broadcast from 7pm – 8.15pm on 25th January 2021 via Facebook and YouTube.
