Paisley Halloween Festival presents Out of this World

Thursday 28 October - Monday 1 November, 2021

Paisley’s popular Halloween celebrations returned in 2021 with Paisley Halloween Festival presents Out of this World.

This year saw a twist on the annual festival’s usual format as the town centre was transformed into an immersive ‘otherworldly’ trail with a series of spectacular displays concentrated around Paisley Abbey, Town Hall and the River Cart from Thursday 28 October until Monday 1 November.

Visitors were able to marvel at out of this world light installations, creatures from the deep invading the famous Town Hall, stunning space crafts, rockets and more on the free, family-friendly trail.

Look back on the all the strange goings-on in the town over the Halloween weekend with the video above.

Paisley Halloween Festival was supported by EventScotland through Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21 and Scotland’s Events Recovery Fund.

The trail was delivered by Renfrewshire Council in partnership with sustainable, not-for-profit creative contractor, Cirque Bijou.

The award-winning festival is widely regarded as one of the best events of its kind in the UK.
