We are sorry to announce that we will not be progressing with the remainder of our events programme this year, as part of ongoing measures to help manage the coronavirus pandemic.
This means that the following events will not go ahead in 2020: Johnstone Fire Engine Rally; Renfrewshire Doors Open Days; The Spree festival; Paisley Halloween Festival; Paisley Fireworks Display; Paisley Christmas Lights Switch-On; Renfrew Christmas Lights Switch-On and Johnstone Christmas Lights Switch-On.
Currently a ban on mass gatherings is in place across Scotland and when lifted it is expected that restrictions will remain in place for some time, including physical distancing measures and advice to avoid crowded places. The decision not to run our events programme also takes into account the lengthy planning time required to safely organise major events.
We hope everyone will understand that we must put public health first. We are continuing to plan our major events programme in Renfrewshire for next year, working closely with national bodies and following public health advice.
