Renfrewshire gets ready for Barshaw Gala Day
People from all over Renfrewshire will be heading to one of Paisley’s prettiest parks this weekend for a gala day for all the family.
This year’s Barshaw Gala Day takes place at Barshaw Park on Saturday 22 June, from 11am until 4pm.
The Barshaw party is one of the most popular events in Renfrewshire’s events calendar – and this year, it’s packed with more activities and entertainment than ever before.
Talented musicians and dancers from the McCallum School of Music, Vision Dance Academy, Razzamataz, RockUs Choir, Inspire School of Dance, and Spangled Cabaret will be wowing the crowds from the Community Stage, alongside indie rockers Atomic and Zoe Tait.
Magic Daze and Cheeko are all set to entertain with their tricks, and nature fans will love Frog Life – a pond wildlife and conservation virtual reality experience.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service will be on hand with a safety demonstration, and youngsters can have a go on the go-karts, take part in freestyle football sessions, and enjoy pirate walkabouts.
And of course, the gala day favourites of inflatables, stalls, and funfair rides will keep everyone entertained.
The park will also have designated smoke-free zones on the day.
Barshaw Park also has play areas, a nature corner, a pond, a BMX area and the ever-popular ride-on train.
Renfrewshire’s Provost Lorraine Cameron said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming people from all over Renfrewshire to Barshaw Park on Saturday to celebrate our local area.
“Our gala days are very important for our communities, as they encourage people of all ages to get together and enjoy some fantastic free activities on this family day out.
“We hope to see people of all ages having fun on the day.”
