Industry: Come and see some old workers tools used in the iron and coal industry and share workers stories from around the town.

Going Out: Did you enjoy going Up The Dancin’ or catch a film at the Regal? A selection of photos, costumes and ticket stubs will take you back to a night oot in Shotts!

School Days: Join us today and share some memories about your school days whether it was in Shotts or elsewhere.

Family History: A drop-in session with our local history officer to show you some tools for tracing your family history.

Shopping: Hark back to the high street of old- which shops and services do you remember in Shotts? We’ve some photos and familiar brands and products as well!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for By-Gone Shotts are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
