Paisley Arts Centre

Paisley Arts Centre is currently undergoing major refurbishment to improve performance facilities and audience experience.

Situated in the heart of Paisley and housed in the Old Laigh Kirk, Paisley Arts Centre has long been established as one of Scotland’s most vibrant and exciting venues for comedy, dance, drama, music, theatre, and family events.

We’re increasing the size of the bar/foyer area. An extension out front will allow the public to see into the building. It will give the building a presence from the street.

Patrons will be delighted to hear that the old blue seats are on their way out. They will be replaced by modern, more comfortable seating bank with more leg room.

For the first time, there will be wheelchair accessible spaces available on the first floor.

As well as audiences, artists are central to the creative life of the building. Brand-new backstage facilities for visiting performers will make them feel welcome in Paisley.

The vision is to make Paisley Arts Centre a creative hub for Renfrewshire. A place that takes creative risks and push artistic boundaries.

The studio space will be available for rehearsals and developing new work while a smaller, multi-purpose function room can be turned to a variety of creative and commercial uses.

Outside will change too, with a remodelling of the pavement and outdoor space to open up the Arts Centre, offering new spaces for performance and making the building more accessible.
