Before making its way up the High Street to Coats Memorial Church, which has been the venue for many a romantic wedding.

The party will then head for Castlehead Cemetery, where Les will tell the fascinating tale of Paisley poet Robert Tannahill’s (right) lost love, Jenny Tennant.

“It’s now 205 years since the death of Robert Tannahill but interest in our bard has never been higher. “There have been CDs recorded and a book written on him but this is the first time the story of his forgotten love will have been told in public.”

Tannahill’s sweetheart Jenny had moved from Dunblane to Paisley as a young girl and lived in the town’s John Street. She was with Tannahill for around three years but was asked to a dance in the town by the poet’s best friend, believed to be John Stewart.

Tannahill agreed but was soon racked with jealousy and, as he awaited their arrival home from the dance at Jenny’s house, he looked on in horror as the young dancers kissed.With his emotions in turmoil, Tannahill headed straight home and penned his infamous ‘Fareweel’ poem and delivered it to Jenny by hand the following morning.

The ‘Fareweel’ poem reads:

But when I knew thy plighted lips,

Once to a rival’s prest,

Love-smothered independence rose,

And spurn’d thee from my breast.

“Jenny was, to all intents and purposes, chucked by a poem! It’s a tragic story because depression soon set in and Tannahill’s death wasn’t far away.

“He committed suicide in the Candren Burn after the failed romance and, what he believed to be, rejections of his work by publishers.

“Little did he know that his work was indeed very highly valued but that the publishers were simply sorting through a mountain of submissions.

“While it is a tragic tale, it is also a story of love as Tannahill never took up with anyone after Jenny. She was the one true love of his life but she broke his heart with a single kiss.”

“After we leave Castlehead Cemetery, we will make our way to Tannahill’s Cottage, where Pauline Valance will play several Tannahill compositions on the harp.

“There will also be many poem recitals and a bite to eat and there will be greeters dressed as Robert Tannahill and Rabbie Burns there to welcome everyone to the cottage.

“Tannahill may be more famous in death than he was during his lifetime but the story of his one true love is certainly one worth telling.”

The Valentine’s tour is open to the public and tickets are priced at £5 each, which includes a buffet and entertainment.

Tickets are limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Glen Cinema

This is where 71 children lost their lives in a fire that never was. The tragedy at the Glen Cinema, on 31st December 1929 unfolded when smoke from a film canister caused panic inside the auditorium. The children were caught in a stampede trying to escape, the escape doors failed to open causing the children to pile on top of each other resulting in them being crushed. This date is remembered as the “Black Hogmanay”
