With just over four weeks to go till Paisley is transported back in time to 1697, the community is rallying round to make sure we get hundreds of people involved in the festivities on the 5 October. We have over 170 participants from community groups all over Renfrewshire who have been working out street scenes for the day under the fantastic leadership and guidance of our Creative Outreach Leader for the project, John Adam.
The groups are now in the process of developing the characters they have created and constructing the unique, individual street scenes that they will go on to perform on the day. Some of these groups include Renfrewshire Carers, Turning Point Scotland, Razzamataz Theatre School, Baragrran Youth Club and lots more, all of whom will be dressed up and performing their distinctive pieces on the 5th.
There are still loads of ways to get involved in the outreach work whether that’s a community group looking to perform on the day, volunteer outreach workers who would like to work with us to gain experience and add to their CV and even set and prop building opportunities. If any of these are areas that interest you then get in touch or alternatively pop into the shop to get a better idea of what the project is all about. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
