Craikie's Crowd

A Hub Of Creative Activity.

Northbank Farm is lying empty and it would make a stunning, scenic event venue, including weddings.  We hope that it would become a "hub of creative activity" within the local community.  

The Story So Far . . . 

As award-winning wedding planners, we have been looking for a venue to give back to the community and help train the next generation for a while.  As luck would have it we stumbled across the most perfect venue, bang in the middle of the central-belt.  Not only is it ideal for all weddings and events, it's ideal for a whole host of community based and educational projects.  

The Vision

Our vision is to create a warm, inviting, rustic space where we can motivate the next generation, give back to the community and inspire all budding wedding planners and photographers.  Having a space to train future wedding professionals whilst offering a cost-effective wedding in a scenic location with views of Forth, the Bridges and the Wallace monument.

What we'll use the money for

It will guarantee our first year's rent, whilst helping to renovate stage one of the barn and setting up a legacy for the future.
