BEMIS celebrates Burns

About BEMIS celebrates Burns

A grand-scale multicultural ceilidh honouring our national bard’s transcendent beliefs in human equality, kinship and conviviality, BEMIS Celebrates Burns embodies these ideals both in its performers and audience.

Among the latter are members of groups funded by BEMIS, Scotland’s national umbrella body supporting development of the ethnic minority voluntary sector, which is currently involved with numerous contributions to Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017/18. These have come from communities whose countries of origin or descent include Congo, Nepal, Iran, Japan, India, Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, China, Azerbaijan and many more – and who also contribute to the goal of a modern, inclusive Scotland where diverse peoples can be united by our humanity and enhanced by our diversity.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for BEMIS celebrates Burns are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
