The first-ever Robert Burns Humanitarian Award concert and a fire garden are two of the highlights of this year’s Alloway 1759 celebrations.
The festival is a commemoration of the birthplace and life of the poet and forms part of the year-round Burns an’ a’ that! Festival.
It starts on January 21 when the concert takes place at the Brig o’Doon Hotel in Ayr.
A limited number of tickets are available for the event, which will be compered by actress Libby McArthur and features Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire.
The festival lasts until January 25 and there are some taster events taking place the weekend before.
There is also a Victorian-themed fire garden called Burns Aflame.
