4 things to do this weekend – 13 April 2018

Thursday 12th April, 2018

It’s the last few days of the Easter school holidays – but there’s plenty happening around Paisley to keep everyone smiling over the next couple of days.

This weekend is also your last chance to go and see some of Paisley Museum’s current exhibitions as they get set to make way for new, exciting displays.

It’s also the time to don your best superhero costume and head along to Paisley Town Hall for the Paisley Comic Con. Following on from the success of last year’s event, we guarantee it’s one not to be missed.

Take a look at just a few of the fantastic things to do for all the family in the area.


Paisley Comic Con

The Creators Hub will be packed with writers, artists, and publishers who will be showcasing their works and taking part in workshops and panels. The day-long event will also feature videogames, Cosplay, story-telling and more – so there’s something for every superhero.
