The Scots’ Charitable Society of Boston will present the poetry of “Scotland’s Bard” Robert Burns on what would be the poet’s 254th birthday, Jan. 20. The Burns Night event will feature bagpipes, highland dress, and an “Address to the Haggis.”

Burns was the author of Auld Lang Syne and A Red, Red Rose, and is Scotland’s most noted poet.

The celebration will be held at the Wellesley Free Library on Washington Street from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Scots’ Charitable Society of Boston was founded in 1657 and incorporated in 1786, according to a release from the group.

The Society participates in highland games, parades and other cultural events in the area.
