327,000 watch the Big Burns Supper

Online success for Janey Godley-hosted show

Janey Godley’s Big Burns Supper attracted a digital audience of 327,000  viewers last night.

Organisers announced that the online entertainment was seen by viewers in 50 countries via Facebook and YouTube

Godley was joined by guests including fellow  comedian Ray Bradshaw musicians KT Tunstall, Donovan and Hollyoaks star Amy Conachan.

Godley said: ‘What an absolutely cracking night! I’m still knackered. Hosting the Big Burns Supper virtual show was a proper honour. 

‘It was so clear from the outpouring of support and positivity from folk tuning in from around the world and raising a dram to Rab, just how vital culture and the arts are to us all..’

Executive producer Graham Main  added: ‘Janey Godley’s Big Burns Supper was a unique contemporary reflection on the Bard’s work, not least as it brought together a superb line-up of local, Scottish and international musicians, actors, comedians and cabaret and burlesque artists, beamed into living rooms in Scotland and across the world for a brilliant collective moment of positivity.’
