Charity Auction in aid of The Mary Russel School

Feeling generous? Then get yourself along to the Crown Bar in Paisley either this Sunday from 4pm, or next Sunday (28th) at the same time, to take part in their annual charity auction. Their auction has been running for 15 years or so now, during which time thousands of pounds have been raised for local charities.

This years auction is in aid of The Mary Russell School and everyone is welcome to go along and grab a bargain.

Hundreds of items will be going up for sale, from household items and electrical goods through to other items donated by locals from the pub and local businesses.

There will also be some pretty special items going up for auction including:

  • A handbag donated by June Brown of Eastenders (Dot Cotton!), used in literally hundreds of Eastenders Episodes!
  • June Browns own personal copy of the script for the last episode that her on screen husband, Jim, took part in!
  • A number of items from the cast of River City
  • Signed Footballs and other Sports Memorabilia

There will be something for everyone, so please don’t be put off by assuming the auction consists only of high priced collectors items. Get along and see for yourself.

Anyone with any questions should contact either the Crown Bar directly, or get in touch with Paul Thomson (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=626299568).

A great event by a Renfrewshire pub for a Renfrewshire service, so please support it.

Feel free to send in pictures of you with your new item if you buy anything – email contactus@renfrewshirepubs.co.uk

4 Live Music Acts and the V-Factor Grand Final!

This weekend there certainly is something for everyone, although if you like some live music as part of your night out, you’ve got more options that those that don’t! 6 different pubs have let it be known they have live music entertainment, so there are no excuses for those who say they’ve nothing to do this weekend.

Starting things off is the final of the popular V-Factor competition, being run by the guys over at The Viscount (Renfrew). Running for several weeks now, tonight the final 6 contenders compete for big cash prizes. It’s sure to be busy, but from what we’ve heard, it’s been excellent so far, so get along!

It’s also Open Mic night again tonight at Caffe Luna (Paisley). We’ve experienced this for ourselves and that chap Michael Cassidy certainly does have a good song in him. We’ll definitely be spotted at the Caffe Luna Open Mic night again in the near future.

We’ve also heard that the refurbished Crown Bar (Paisley) has an Open Mic night this evening.

As for Live Music, where to begin? The popular Vendetta and Unkle Remus are both back in Renfrewshire this weekend. We’ve listed them a couple of times now and both seem to get top-notch reviews each time they play.

You’ll find Vendetta playing The Kelburne (Paisley) tonight while Unkle Remus can be found tomorrow night over at The Glenleven in Kilbarchan.

Elsewhere, we’ve been informed via our Facebook page that Paisley girl Nicole Cameron is playing an acoustic folk/indie set over at The Burgh Bar (Paisley) from 7:30pm. While the Happy Ever After can be found playing the ever popular Hamishes Hoose (Paisley) on Saturday night.

Remember we’re trying to build our list of events across Renfrewshire, so if you know of any Poker events, Karaoke Events, Pub Quiz Nights, Live Music nights or any other sort of afternoon / night even happening in one of the Pubs, Bars or Inns in Renfrewshire, let us know!

3 New Pubs, 2 Open Mic Nights and 1 Unkle Remus!

Thanks to the contribution of a few of our Facebook friends, we have now added 3 more pubs to the Renfrewshire Pubs website. Not only that, by next week we’ll also be posting more information about additional entertainment such as Karaoke nights, Darts nights and more. More reasons to spread the word about Renfrewshire Pubs!

You’re a Friday night sort of person? Well, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a singer or musician, we can recommend you get along to either Caffe Luna or The Crown Bar in Paisley and put your name forward for their respective Open Mic evenings tonight.

If watching others sing is more your thing, then the quarter finals of the V Factor contest at The Viscount in Renfrew starts at 8:30pm. It’s fast getting towards its final at the end of March!

If your preference is to relax on a Friday and be entertained on a Saturday instead, the Howwood Inn is the place to be as the ever popular Unkle Remus are on stage.

The weekly Poker league with MTT Poker also continues over at The Station bar, Paisley.

So, plenty to be keeping you busy!

If you’re looking for somewhere completely different to drink for a change, then why not head along to one of the 3 pubs added to the Renfrewshire Pubs site today – The Club Bar (Paisley), The Crown Bar (Paisley) and Rennies (Johnstone).
