Sharon Shannon is regarded as one of the most gifted and popular musicians of her time. Irish born Sharon is coming to Biggar for the first time, accompanied by multi instrumentalist Alan Connor for what promises to be a memorable concert.
This is one of the few occasions that Sharon will perform in Scotland so interest will be high. Here is the lovely lady in action…
Prefer theatre? What about ‘If these spasms could speak’. An outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies. Created and performed by Robert Softley, it exposes a truth behind bodies that differ from the norm. His own narrative – told with wry humour, charm and sincerity – is woven through with monologues in an engaging and highly charismatic way. It is both a challenge to society’s perceptions and desire for classifications, and a celebration of being alive. A sell-out hit at festivals and events across the UK, Brazil, India and throughout Europe, ‘If These Spasms Could Speak’ is a tender and uplifting theatre experience.
Or combine music and theatre with Shine. Shine Youth Music Theatre will present a selection of songs from stage and screen. This vibrant youth theatre sell-out productions wherever they go and look forward to entertaining crowds at Biggar Little Festival. Here they are rehearsing…
