Don’t miss… Silent Disco at Paisley Halloween Festival – Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October

As you may know, the award-winning Paisley Halloween Festival returns to take over the town for a fright-filled weekend on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October. For the first time, this year’s festival will feature a spooky silent disco where party-goers can show off their best Monster Mash and Thriller dance moves. The open-air silent disco, delivered by Silent Knights, will provide plenty of dancing, DJs, singing and Halloween fun. Taking place in the town’s Dunn Square, there will be a series of 40-minute sessions for families and festival-goers to enjoy over the two days. There will also be two relaxed disco slots suitable for those with additional support needs and their families and carers. During these time slots the music will be turned down in the wireless headphones and there will be more room to dance around.
