Sma' Shot Day 2019 Family Events

sma_shot_day_2019


Taking place on the first Saturday of July to celebrate Paisley's weaving history - Come down and party like it's 1856!

This year will be no different - everyone is invited to join the annual party on Saturday 6 July from 12 noon to 5pm. And with almost 50 events taking place across 20 different venues, this year’s celebration promises to be the best yet!
Festivities will get underway at noon as the colourful parade leaves Brodie Park, heading for Paisley Arts Centre led by the tuck of the Charleston Drum. The parade this year will feature local groups, performers, spectacular floats and giant puppets, all co-ordinated by parade specialists Bridgeman Arts.
2019 will also see Sma’ Shot Day return to its roots, quite literally, by moving to the streets around the historic Sma’ Shot Cottage in Paisley’s town centre; with Shuttle Street, New Street, Witherspoon Street and Brown’s Lane all set to come alive with music, theatre, poetry, crafts and lots of family friendly activities.
Amongst these activities there will of course be the Burning of the Cork (1.15pm within the grounds of Paisley Arts Centre) which sees the ‘Corks’ - the middlemen between the owners and the weavers - meet their fate at the hands of the working weavers in spectacular fashion.
The Sma’ Shot Cottages will also be open 12 noon til 4pm for your chance to see what life was really like for the weavers in the 19th century. Catch a guided tour or watch live weaving demonstrations with Paisley Museum’s textiles expert, Dan Coughlan. We also recommend a trip to Paisley Thread Mill Museum to complete your weaving experience on the industry’s most celebrated day of the year!
