What's it all about
Mid-October in Biggar means two weeks of arts highlighting the very best of our local cultural activity together with top class entertainment and artistry from across the country.
We want to see local talent flourish in an atmosphere designed to give it a showcase. Biggar Little Festival sets out to work with the arts and crafts communities around the town to advance the arts by
• developing Biggar and its surrounds as a community where the arts are encouraged and promoted
• encouraging links between local arts groups, artistic understanding and participation
• promoting exhibitions and performances
• developing opportunities for local, national and international artists to demonstrate their talents in Biggar and its surrounds
Please view the following video by Helen Barrington, to give you a flavour of what you can expect to see at the Biggar Little Festival !
During the 2015 Festival the Committee commissioned an appraisal from the independent consultancy company EKOS to gauge the success of the festival and lessons to be learned. The resulting report is available here. The Committee is now considering how to take forward the issues raised.
The Annual General Meeting of Biggar Little Festival will take place on Monday 12th June at the Elphinstone Hotel, 136 High Street, Biggar at 7.30pm. All welcome.
