The Corn Exchange is home to The Biggar Theatre Workshop. Following the building being gifted to the Biggar Burgh Council, it has been used for many years as the home of our local amateur theatre. The Biggar Theatre Workshop was founded in 1971 and since then has become one of the main sources of arts facilities in the district, allowing the people of Biggar and the surrounding areas the opportunity to participate in live theatre as well as creating a performance and arts venue for local and travelling theatre groups. Following a major refurbishment, largely enabled by Lottery funding, Biggar Corn Exchange Ltd now leases the building from South Lanarkshire Council at a nominal rent and is responsible for all maintenance and repairs. In addition to it’s role as Biggar’s Performing Arts Centre, it continues as the venue for Biggar Theatre Workshop theatrical performances. Previous productions have included Calendar Girls, Guys and Dolls, Treasure Island – The Panto, Ordinary People, Oscar Wilde’s ‘Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime’, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Good Things, Aladdin, Sweeney Todd, Me and My Girl and Miracle Worker. Keep checking the Biggar Theatre Workshop website for further information on up coming productions.
