It was at the Bachelors Club at Tarbolton where Robert Burns learned to dance; launched the debating club and became a Freemason.
Following a very successful 2019, in which the Bachelors club brought back to life debates, music, poetry and prose, 2020 will see the continuation of these popular events.
On the First Tuesday of each month there is an Open Mic Night with music, songs and tales. The evening event start at 7pm. Enjoy the varied performances or feel free to take part with music, song, poetry or prose.
Turning the clock back to the year 1780 when Robert Burns launched the debating club on the 3rd Monday of each month, at 7.00pm, we will have a Debate Night with one subtle difference: it will be open for all to enjoy.
Don’t let the title “Bachelors Club” mislead you. You don’t have to be a bachelor and you don’t have to be a man!
All events are free to attend though any donations are welcome. These are used solely for the upkeep and development of The Bachelors Club.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Volunteers Information Hub at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.
