Christmas is coming to Renfrew

Renfrew will shine bright this Saturday, 23 November, as the Christmas lights are switched on in the town.

Fireworks over Renfrew Town Hall 2018 The festivities in the town centre kick off at 12pm and there's a sleigh-load of free family fun on offer to keep even the littlest elf entertained.

Don't miss free face painting and a balloon artist in Renfrew Town Hall until 4pm, and there will be performances of Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre's Lost Bear's Christmas at 12pm and 1pm.

It wouldn't be Christmas without carols and the Renfrew Burgh Band will keep you entertained with all the favourites during their annual carol concert in Renfrew Town Hall from 3pm.

Santa will be taking a break from his busy schedule to hear what the boys and girls of Renfrew have on their lists this year - you can find him inside the Renfrew Christian Fellowship Hall until 4pm. Don't forget to say hi to Rudolph and his friends!
