"The A-list Burns Club" ('Scottish Daily Mail' - Nov. 24th, 2009)
In 1781 Robert Burns worked in Irvine, where Captain Richard Brown encouraged Burns to publish his verse, and Burns kept up with current literature in William Templeton's shop. Burns found Irvine a 'wonderfully educative place' (Carswell).
In 1826, two friends of Robert Burns, with ten others, founded Irvine Burns Club, which, in 1962, opened the Wellwood Museum - open four times weekly from April to September, and weekly during the winter.
