In the summer of 2012, the Tranent 25 Burns Club organised a trip to the Tarbolton Bachelors' Club. Around 35 Burnsians from the 25 Club accompanied by guests from sister Burns Club enjoyed lunch at the Stair Inn followed by a fascinating talk from Jim Jamieson at the grave of Lady Stair in the local kirkyard about Lady Stair and her influence on Burns' life and work.

We then progressed to the Bachelors' Club in Tarbolton for a hugely enjoyable Burns Supper. A great day out was enjoyed by one and all.
