Renfrewshire Council cancel planned events up until November

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Renfrewshire Council has cancelled all events due to take place this summer, as well as the Paisley Halloween Festival.

The following events will no longer take place: Renfrew Gala Day; Barshaw Gala Day; Johnstone Fire Engine Rally; Renfrewshire Doors Open Days; The Spree festival; and Paisley Halloween Festival.

All council-run events after October will continue to be reviewed in line with national guidance from the Scottish Government and public health advice, with a further decision on the staging of Paisley Fireworks and the Paisley, Johnstone and Renfrew Christmas lights switch-on events expected by June 30.

Paisley’s annual Sma’ Shot Day celebrations will be marked this year – but in a different way. A programme of online events will take place on Saturday 4 July to commemorate the historic victory of local weavers, as well as the invaluable contribution of today’s key workers across Renfrewshire.
