Barnaby’s has gone a bit Scottish, in support of the mighty wordsmith Rabbie Burns. This Saturday, your favourite coffee will come with a yummy (and free) piece of delicious Scottish shortbread! We hope you enjoy it.
Born in 1759, Burns is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, and is celebrated on 25th January – his birthday. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, and is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement. After his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of liberalism and socialism, and a cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish diaspora around the world. Celebration of his life and work has almost become a national charismatic cult, and his influence has long been strong on Scottish literature.
Enjoy your Burns Night!
