5 Things not to miss at Paisley Halloween Festival 2022

1. Get as close as you dare to the giant spider’s lair…

A giant, 8-legged arachnid has woven an intricate web on Abbey Close, but watch out, she has glowing eggs to protect!

2. Marvel at the gravity-defying tricks of the All or Nothing crew

Good will clash with evil atop our two aerial performance spots; a 20ft high digital wall and on top of the Piazza shopping centre roof! All or Nothing will dazzle you with their mid-air gymnastics – just remember to look up!

3. Say hello to the madcap Dr Kronovator, head of the fire laboratory

Dr K and his assistants will guide you through the fearsome fire garden in this entirely flammable, interactive show.

4. Find all the monsters and ghouls hidden across Paisley town centre

Follow the Paisley First trail to shops and businesses throughout the town centre and discover lots of Halloween surprises.

5. Catch festival favourites deliver blistering street performances

Festival regulars Spark! LED Drummers and the flame-throwing PyroCeltica will take to the streets alongside some newcomers, including a fire-breathing dragon! Our street acts will roam around the whole event site all evening, giving revellers plenty of opportunities to see them!
