Big Burns Supper party keeps on rolling

The Bay City Rollers performed in front of a sell-out crowd in the Spiegeltent at the Big Burns Supper on Saturday night.

Hundreds of fans, waving tartan scarves, turned out to see the 70s rock stars perform in Dumfries.

Les McKeown and the band played their popular hits including Shang A Lang, I Only Wanna Be With You and Bye Bye Baby.

"That was a fantastic gig, I couldn’t believe what a great time we have all had here at Big Burns Supper.”

“When they were young we were the untouchable dream boyfriends for a lot of girls. Nowadays we are their untouchable granddads.

“We love it that so many people want to dress up in the tartan gear and join us for a great time.”

“What is being done here is superb for Scotland and for – and it’s fantastic to see such a tremendous mix of performers.

“It’s tremendous that we have such a huge festival in Dumfries as Big Burns Supper with so much going on.

“The atmosphere here is absolutely amazing and it’s great to see so many people out here having a good time at all the shows being put on by the festival.”

“That was just brilliant – it took me back 40 years. It’s that mix of fun, nostalgia, music and song that Big Burns Supper is so good at. And I think Burns himself would have loved it too, because those are things he enjoyed.”

– David Mundell MP, Secretary of State for Scotland
