Sensory Safe Space

A Sensory Safe Space will be available inside the Lesser Hall of Paisley Methodist Church. This will be a quiet space specially created for individuals with additional support needs and will feature arts and crafts, musical instruments and lighting, gentle music and soft seating. This will be available to drop-in from 12 noon to 6pm on Saturday 27 April.

Kid Friendly Portions

We hate seeing tasty grub go to waste, that’s why this year’s traders will be serving up smaller plates for young foodies for half price.


Live Entertainment

Grab a seat close to the Main Stage in Abbey Gardens and relax in the spring time sunshine (rain please stay away!) with some top tunes and entertainment. Pulse FM will be your host from noon ‘til 9pm plus kids’ favourites Sprog Rock will perform two rocking gigs specially created for fives and under.
