The Big Picnic

The Big Picnic 2018

Falkirk's favourite festival is back for 2018 - we are throwing an entire day of music, outdoor entertainment and great fun for you and your friends and….. It's FREE!

With something for everyone to enjoy , grab a picnic, a blanket and some comfy cushions and head down to The Helix on Sunday 12th August from 11-5pm.

On the great lawn, we will have lots of entertaining live music to be enjoyed at The Park Stage, whilst the kids burn off those sandwiches in the Adventure Play Zone and splash play area (remember a towel).

Don't miss other great perfomrers at The Garden Stage. It's a great excuse for a fun, free family day out this summer, see you there!


- We recommend parking for free at Falkirk Stadium as the Helix great lawn is just a short stroll across the road. DO NOT PARK ON THE VERGE OF THE M9 !

- For additional event details on the day, head to the Information Point on the Great Lawn.

- This event is dog friendly but make sure to keep your doggy friend on a lead ! 

- Additional portable toilets will be located by the Adventure Play area
