Things to do on a rainy day

While wall-to-wall sunshine would be lovely, we know it’s a little unrealistic to expect the weather to shine kindly on us ALL summer.

Best to have some ideas and activities on hand for rainy days then…

PAC to the Future

Enjoy a celebration of the Paisley Arts Centre, looking back over 34 years of cultural programming.

During the refurb, you can watch fantastic online music shows, local films, panel discussions and reunions with creatives involved in the earliest days of the Arts Centre and lots more.
