It’s all going on in Renfrewshire

THE new edition of a What’s On Guide reveals there’s plenty going on in a line-up of cultural events being staged at venues throughout Renfrewshire.


Renfrewshire Leisure is staging a varied programme of shows, exhibitions and workshops from now until the end of April.  An events brochure listing all that is going on, called The Guide has just been launched.

The colourful free brochure – jam-packed with information about more than 40 different shows and events – can be picked up at Paisley Town Hall, Paisley Museum, Paisley Arts Centre, Renfrew Town Hall and Johnstone Town Hall. The Guide can also be downloaded by logging on to www.renfrewshireleisure.com .

The events being staged feature drama, music, dance, comedy, exhibitions, talks and workshops.
They include everything from a performance by award-winning traditional folk band, Breabach, stand-up comedian, Chris Ramsey to well-known film and TV actor, David Hayman appearing in a play called The Cause of Thunder to an exhibition of Star Wars memorabilia called May The Toys Be With You.

There are also events that are part of various festivals – International Women’s Day, Puppet Animation Festival and for the first time, LGBT History Month.

Chief executive of Renfrewshire Leisure, Joyce McKellar said: “There is culture everywhere you look in and around Paisley, these days.
“There’s something for everyone to enjoy and The Guide is the best way to find out what’s going on.”

Tickets for all the events are now on sale and can be bought online at www.renfrewshireleisure.com/arts  or by phoning 0300 300 1210 or in person at Paisley Arts Centre, in New Street, Paisley.
