Organisers of Homecoming 2009 have announced their hopes of establishing a new World Record for the greatest number of Burns suppers ever held, as part of next year’s festivities. The World Famous Burns Supper Celebration will help mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. A new website will showcase everyone’s plans for celebrating Burns Night and every supper registered will be flagged on an interactive world map.
