Now word has spread that Paisley’s Fireworks Spectacular has sadly been cancelled this Saturday, we’d like to answer some of the questions we’ve received via our channels.

What will happen with the road closures?

All planned road closures will be lifted and there will be no road closures in place. There is a yellow warning in place for rain so please be careful when driving.

What about the activities that were planned for the Town Hall and the fun fair at County Square?

All activity that was planned for Paisley’s Fireworks Spectacular has been cancelled and will not go ahead.

When was the last time it was cancelled?

We cancelled the show in 2014 because of wind direction – we have to make sure we protect private properties and our lovely Abbey and Town Hall.

Will the event be rescheduled?

There is no plan to reschedule at this time but we look forward to welcoming everyone to our Christmas Lights Switch-On in Paisley on Saturday 17 November.

Could Paisley not do a Christmas Lights Switch-On and Firework display on the 17th?

This might be a possibility in future years but our plans for Christmas Lights are already in place. We are really sorry everyone is missing out on Fireworks.

Why can’t you have it on Sunday night instead?

Unfortunately the forecast for Sunday is still a cause for concern, but we hope you will be able to come along for Christmas Lights on the 17th.

What happens to people who had guest access for Fireworks?

New wristbands will be given out for our Christmas Lights Switch-On. Please email the events team if you have any questions and they will be happy to help you.
