'In such a diverse community as Biggar, the festival organisers have struggled to come up with single themes for BLF and have settled on a Festival of the Five Arts - with a strong message that there is something for everyone. The ethos has been to bring together all the skill and talent that exists here, and encourage groups and clubs, large and small, to put on their own events during the festival period.' Held Late October.

'Founded in 1960 and every year since then has been bringing to this corner of Scotland a season of concerts of classical and contemporary music performed by musicians of national and international acclaim. We have always encouraged young artists and we have an excellent reputation with our audiences and amongst the promoters of music in Scotland for the very high standards of our concerts. Meeting the ever rising cost becomes increasingly difficult and would never be possible without generous help from Enterprise Music Scotland and our other sponsors and supporters.'

'We are an award-winning amateur flute orchestra ... With a full range of eight different types of flute - from piccolo down to subcontrabass in G - we play more instruments than you might think. Accompanied by a full range of percussion, we are able to achieve the most orchestral sound possible ... Although we have many experienced players, we also have a number of learners of all ages. We are always keen to hear from players of all abilities, as well as absolute beginners who may be interested in learning. The orchestra is available to play concerts for your school, church or any other event; and can be a novel way of fundraising for your own organisation.'

‘The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) was established on the 1st of  April 2013, replacing the eight previous fire and rescue authorities and joint fire and rescue boards. The main purpose of the SFRS is to work in partnership with communities and with others in the public, private and third sectors on prevention, protection and response to improve the safety and wellbeing of people throughout Scotland. The SFRS Pipe Bands play a major part in promoting the Service all over Scotland from their base ... We have a competing Grade 2 Band and Novice Juvenille band which between them represent the SFRS at many ceremonial and social functions throughout the year. Both bands compete at all Major Pipe Band Championships.’
