For Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology Paisley’s Sma’ Shot Day will be celebrated with a three-day festival with a wrap-around cultural programme called ‘Weave’.
The entire weekend (Fri 30 Jun – Sun 2 Jul 2017) will be played out across Paisley’s historic town centre, featuring the traditional colourful pageant led by the ‘Charleston’ drummer. Hundreds of participants and performers will wend their way through the streets in a dazzling depiction of Paisley’s history as a global textiles centre.
Over the weekend, this family friendly festival offers live music, poetry, craft and design, kids’ activities, dance, street performance and more to tell the story of the weavers’ rebellion, the iconic Paisley Pattern and its legacy for modern day makers and artists.
