Lucky Middlemass’s Tavern
NEU! REEKIE! Presents
Featuring Performances by:
Burns&Beyond with Johnnie Walker celebrates The Bard with an online recreation of Lucky Middlemass’s Tavern. Filmed on location in The Caves, Edinburgh, the site of the famed 18th century tavern, where the ale and claret flowed along with progressive discussion and music, and where literary greats and Enlightenment figures including Robert Burns, David Hume, Adam Smith, Deacon Brodie, James Watt and Benjamin Franklin were just some of the regulars, an uproarious and thought-provoking assembly of song and poetry curated by Edinburgh arts collective Neu! Reekie!
One of the most famous love songs written by Robert Burns, ‘A Red, Red Rose’. Part of the song’s appeal is its use of powerful, natural imagery to convey a love that is ever-lasting and capable of surviving both distance and time.
Burns&Beyond with Johnnie Walker presents a FREE programme of events and performances for you to enjoy on Burns Night weekend, but content will remain on our website for you to return and enjoy at any time.Schedule
