Friends of the Corn Exchange is a community organisation set up to raise funds to contribute towards the maintenance and development of the Corn Exchange as a cultural hub and performing arts centre. The organisation is independent of Biggar Theatre Workshop Ltd and is a registered charity (SC046590).
The Corn Exchange is a community facility, and needs ongoing financial support to maintain the fabric of the building and develop and improve the facilities.
You can support the Corn Exchange by becoming a Friend for as little as £10 a year. If you are a UK tax payer, your donation can be boosted by 25 pence for every £1 you donate because, as a registered charity, we can reclaim the tax you pay.
