Biggar Bonfire

About Biggar Bonfire

The bonfire in the South Lanarkshire town of Biggar is lit every Hogmanay at 9.30pm in the High Street at the Corn Exchange.

At the start of the night, the festivities begin with a torchlight parade with pipers and drummers. Then the much anticipated bonfire begins, a tradition which is goes back many generations and even continued throughout WW2 when a candle in a tin replaced the bonfire as blackouts were in place.

Come and join us!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Biggar Bonfire are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
