We are a men's association in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We celebrate the life and works of Robert Burns and promote Scottish heritage.
Our organization is based on the Tarbolton Bachelors' Club founded by Burns. Like the original club, we seek to be “a diversion for the weary man worn down by necessary labours of life”.
We have a choir which is welcomed at numerous venues in town. Our members perform other work for good causes. Our Burns Supper is the highlight of our social year. It is highly regarded for its good times and top speakers.
July 21st is the anniversary of the death of Burns. Read some reflections by the president of the Robert Burns World Federation.
The Halifax Burns Club expresses its sincere sympathies to the family of the late Andrew Forsyth, one of our Founding Members and a Past President of the Club. Bill Forster has written a Memoriam to Andy.
The next HBC meeting will be our Annual General Meeting in September.
The Summer BBQ has been cancelled because of the risks posed by COVID-19.
