On February 1st 2020, the British Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania is organising its 21st Burns Night in Vilnius to celebrate the birthday of the Scottish national poet, Robert Burns (1759 – 1796) and to raise for local youth & children charities.
The event in Vilnius also will mark 21 years of continuous promotion of Scottish traditions and culture in Lithuania.
Over the years the growing local interest in Scottish traditions and fundraising for charities has successfully transformed the BCCL’s annual Burns Night celebration into a highly popular event supported and enjoyed by the local business community in Vilnius. It is a wonderful and uniting tradition with no borders or politics. Once a year we come together to learn about Scottish culture, enjoy Scottish music, dance and traditions, and generously support the Chamber in its fundraising for Lithuanian charities.
