The Corn Exchange re-opened in October 2010, following major refurbishment works.
South Lanarkshire Council and Biggar Theatre Workshop worked in partnership to secure funding to complete a number of external and internal repairs essential for the building to remain operational, extend its life and improve its appearance.
Funding from the Rural Community Heritage Fund allowed them to commission a feasibility study from Richard Murphy Architects to look at a redesign of the Corn Exchange.
The first good news was that £197,350 was awarded to the Biggar Theatre Workshop towards the first phase of improvements to the Corn Exchange in the High Street from the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund. This, added to the substantial sums offered by both the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Council, meant that the BTW board, working in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council, secured close to £550,000 funding for the Corn Exchange project.
