My Story

George Adam MSP says it is an honour to represent Paisley and is excited about the town's bid for UK City of Culture 2021.


Representing the people and the town as Paisley’s MSP is an honour that I appreciate every day. This is the best job that anyone could wish for, being elected for the town where they were born and love.

Like all my fellow buddies I am excited about the bid to be the UK City of Culture 2021. This gives us the chance to show the world what 21st century Paisley has to offer.

Many towns and cities have their challenges and Paisley is no different but challenges are there to be overcome.

Paisley has offered so much in the past with so many people from the town giving their talents to the world. We all know the names, actors, poets, artists, singers, activists, sportspeople and adventurers.

We have a huge amount of important buildings many of which have noted historical influence.

Our town continues to have that positive spirit, that Team-Paisley feel that few other places have.

It is now time to grab the opportunity that we have been given and showcase that Paisley that we all know and the culture it continues to provide.

The Scottish Government have shown their confidence in us, it is time we all step up to the plate and do our bit to make Paisley – UK City of Culture 2021.
