Biggar Little Festival would like to say a huge thank you to all our existing Patrons. Our Festival Patrons are vital to supporting the Festival and their contributions allow the Festival to continue to flourish and develop.
If you would like to support the Festival and your local community you can become a Patron for a minimum annual donation of £10.
As a patron you would be invited to our opening reception in October, offering you an opportunity to meets some of the artists and representatives of many of the groups and organisations involved in the Festival.
For ease of administration, we encourage payment by standing Order and this can be arranged quarterly, half-yearly or annually, by indicating on the Patrons form. We also accept payment by cheque.
In addition, Gift Aid increases the value of your donation by allowing us to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. That means if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it's worth £12.50 to us.
If you would like to support the Festival please download the Patron's form here.
Please complete and return the form with your donation or standing order and gift aid form to Jim Softley, Chairman of Biggar Little Festival at Glenholm, 4 Manse Drive, Biggar ML12 6BD.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss your patronage or supporting the Festival please contact Jim on 07720 460310.
