Big Burns Supper festival is an independent festival in South Scotland running at the end of January every year to audiences of over 30,000.

W are members of the Association of Festival Organisers  as well as Association of Independent Festivals

We run our festival a bit like a Fringe Festival in that we run for eleven days, but we turn-around a lot of different shows in one day.   We programme everything into a magical Spiegeltent which can be set up as standing, seated or cabaret, depending on the atmosphere of the show.

We kit it out with the very latest industry equipment, and we cover all Lights, Sound & Promotion in our deals with incoming artists, as well as full ground team who make sure you artists are looked after with nothing but the best of Scottish hospitality.

Check out the kit we bring in as standard, on some deals we will bring additional kit in
