Message from our President

PresidentAs President of Greenock Burns Club (The Mother Club), I am proud to welcome you to the website of the world’s oldest Burns Club.

When the Greenock Burns Club was formed in 1801, the aim was to cherish the name of Robert Burns, his writings and to encourage and interest in the Scottish language and literature: that aim has not changed. During my year as President I am committed to doing just that, through an exciting, educational and enjoyable series of events, to which you are most cordially invited.

If you are in Greenock then please consider visiting our wonderful Burns Exhibition and Archive at the Greenock Customhouse. The exhibition is open every Saturday from 12 noon until 2.00pm. It is also open on selected days when cruise ships are calling at the Greenock Ocean Terminal, just a few hundred yards from the Customhouse. We look forward to greeting our cruise passengers who visit: they will be made most welcome.

Please feel free to contact us through our website or social media regarding visiting, membership or any questions you may have.
