As Biggar launches its Little Festival, Clydesdale’s MSP, Aileen Campbell, has sent her best wishes to the organisers in what will be the cultural jamboree’s 11th year.

From 17th to 27th October the Clydesdale market town will again be transformed into a haven of art, music, theatre and much entertainment and fun for all the family.

Aileen, who lives in the town with her husband and son, said:

"I always look forward to this time of year. Even though summer has past and the nights draw in - Biggar brightens the gloom with its fabulous festival.

"It really has something for everyone, catering for culture vultures, to those who just want to have fun.

"This year’s programme is as exciting and as eclectic as ever - with blues legend Paul Jones, rubbing shoulders with top Scots comedians Bruce Morton and John Gavin - but there is so much more.

"Importantly, the BLF also offers a great showcase for local talent - artists, poets, dancers - and there are many events specifically designed and organised for children and young people.

"There’s also an opportunity to sample some of the tastiest food that Clydesdale’s larder can offer.

"The local businesses should also benefit, because I know they put in so much effort to ensure its success.

"Once again, look out Edinburgh, your wee neighbour is on your tail!"
