What’s On guide – 21 December

Thursday 20th December, 2018

Excitement is building with just a few days to go until Christmas – but first, make sure you enjoy these great events in Renfrewshire this weekend before Santa comes to town.

Head to Paisley Arts Centre for festive fun at a pantomime, take yourself back to the 90s for a nostalgia night at The Bungalow, watch some top hockey action on the ice and more.

Here’s a closer look at four fantastic things to do this weekend with the Paisley.is team.


Blue Rose Code

Edinburgh-born songwriter Ross Wilson is the man at the helm of Blue Rose Code and is bringing his eclectic blend of folk, jazz, soul and pop to Paisley. Addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future with his signature sound, Blue Rose Code has been compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits. This night is not to be missed in the stunning surroundings of Paisley Town Hall.
