Paisley Arts Centre

If you are planning on taking in a show during your time in Paisley then look no further.

Situated in the centre of Paisley and tucked neatly behind the Paisley Shopping Centre on New Street, Paisley Arts Centre is one of Scotland’s most vibrant and exciting venues with a year-round programme of comedy, dance, drama, music, theatre and family events.

The café bar is a great place to enjoy a pre or post-show drink or nibble, with a beer garden perfect for those summer days and nights.

Formerly the Laigh Kirk ( built by the town council nearly 250 years ago as Paisley’s first post-Reformation church), the building has played host to arts events since 1987.

On arrival, why not take a self-led tour of the centre? Discover the history of the silk merchants and manufacturers buried within the grounds.

Today, Paisley has become a hub for musical and artistic culture. On several occasions, my family and I have walked into Paisley town centre to see its bustling and vibrant atmosphere, either in the form of live music, magic shows and many other entertaining performances which draw large crowds.
