Time is now running out to grab your discounted early bird tickets for this year’s Big Tent Festival.
The 10% discount on advance ticket bookings is due to end at midnight on Friday 30th April.
This year marks the festival’s fifth anniversary and promises to be even bigger and better than previous years, with an extended and exciting programme of activities and entertainment now running over 3 days from 6pm on Friday 23rd until 9pm on Sunday 25th July.
Showcasing some of the biggest and best local and international music, the 3 day festival will include performances from King Creosote, Aberfeldy, FOUND, The Zawose Family and Grammy-award winning singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash.
Alongside a fantastic programme of music and dance, there will also be a showcase of worldwide talent including lively debates, poetic recitations, traditional arts and crafts workshops and cookery demonstrations, all in tune with the three main themes of the event;
- Moving with Africa – how we can support Africa and cut carbon emissions
- A future for food – looking at food traditions, local and sustainable food, the benefits of growing your own food etc
- Innovation, culture and habitat – change and transition – how innovations and culture can impact on natural habitats and can be intertwined
The Big Tent is a family friendly festival with extensive activities for children such as craft-making, story-telling and face-painting. There will be an on-site solar-powered cinema offering big screen magic and Mr Boom, one of Scotland’s most popular entertainers will be making a return appearance as street performers amuse parents and children alike as they make their way between the tented “zones”.
Helen Lawrenson, Centre Director, Falkland Centre for Stewardship said: “Big Tent is a flagship event in Fife’s 2010 Year of Culture and is sure to be extremely popular. Last year’s event was a sell out and we’d really like to encourage people to book their tickets well in advance to secure their place. Big Tent is still one of the most affordable festivals on the circuit by a considerable margin, but we’d urge as many people as possible to book early to secure the current discounts.”
