About The Big Picnic

Falkirk's favourite festival is back for 2019! Come down to the Helix on Sunday 11th August for a fun filled family day out - and don't forget your picnic! There will be lots of activities for all ages to enjoy plus live entertainment from some fantastic local talent.

Based at the great lawn, there will be a whole host of activity to get involved with. Please note some activity has a small charge and can be booked in advance.

We will have lots of entertaining live music to be enjoyed at The Park Stage.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Big Picnic are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
