Sma Shot day 2008 is on the 5th July 2008 will begin at 11am and leaves Brodie Park on its way down to Abbey Close in the town and hopefully Tony Lawler will lead the parade with a replica of the Charelston Drum.

A wealth of stalls, funfairs, street theatre and onstage entertainment – including a re-enactment of the Sma’ Shot Story by local youth theatre PACE, ‘Loud ‘n’ Proud’ celebrating the ‘Charleston Drum’ with a drumming extravaganza and the ‘Burning of the Cork’ – will ensure that the day will be a memorable one.
