Biggar Little Cinema
Biggar Little Cinema was founded in February 2011 and is run on a non-profit basis by members of the Rotary Club of Biggar. Their aim is to provide the opportunity for members of a rural community to enjoy good films without having to travel some distance to a commmercial cinema. Films are shown in the Corn Exchange, Biggar, generally on the last Saturday of each month at 7.30pm. Click on the link to check out forthcoming films.

Biggar Theatre Workshop
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.
There are two groups within the Workshop:
The Youth Workshop: for P 6-7 and S 1-2
The Adult Workshop: for grown-up children of all ages!!
Clydesdale Folk Club
The CFC meets on the last Thursday of the month upstairs in the function room of the Elphinstone Hotel, Biggar, Scotland.
The Club is based at “The Elph”, which is centrally located on the High Street close to the top pedestrian crossing and opposite the Corn Exchange. We either use the upstairs bar (up to 30 people) or the upstairs lounge (up to 70 people). Drinks are usually available downstairs and if you plan your evening properly then “The Elph” serves really good meals.
A website listing the events - music, visual art, craft, writing, drama and dance and the people - musicians, artists, photographers, dancers, writers, actors, producers, craftsmen and craftswomen - individuals or groups, professional or amateur, living or working in the Clyde Valley of central Scotland, who contribute to its cultural richness and diversity.
