What's It All About?

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

BLF Committee member Alec Taylor dropped by Biggar Co-op to thank Carol for the contribution of £2200 made by local Coop members through the Co-op's Local Community Fund.
This is a remarkable contribution to BLF and we are extremely grateful for it. We urge anyone who isn't a Co-op member already to join up and help local causes through this great initiative.


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.
