Step Away From The Computer #3: Big In Falkirk

Music lovers, fear not the great outdoors with its helpless barrier against rain, wind and death by pig. Go forth and rejoice in the pleasure of a weekend of free entertainment at BIG IN FALKIRK, the third festival in our Step Away From The Computer series.

This year the event brings its customary diet of theatre, comedy, art, fireworks and, of course, live musicians, including arguably Scotland’s best hip-hop act, Young Fathers.

Fascinating fact:

Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3.
