Paisley's Winter Festival

Paisley's winter events programme is bigger and better than ever before with a two-day Halloween Festival, a special 80’s themed Fireworks Spectacular and the town’s annual Christmas Lights Switch On forming the heart of the celebrations taking place in the area before the end of the year.

Northern Irish rockers Ash will bring their rousing show to the thousands expected to attend this year's Paisley Christmas Lights Switch On as the headline act on the live stage.

The winter events fever will extend right across Renfrewshire with live music and free family entertainment taking place at Christmas Lights Switch Ons in Renfrew on Saturday 25 November and Johnstone on Saturday 2 December. The annual Trad Awards ceremony will also be held at Paisley Town Hall on Saturday 2 December.
