PCTPorg teaser fin

Paisley.org.uk, Paisley leading community focused website founded by Brian McGuire has announced its full support and backing of Paisley Community Trust’s proposed plans for a new Performing Arts and Film Theatre for the Town.
As part of a series of early stage discussions, first draft designs of the Trust’s proposed Performing Arts and Film Theatre have been shared with key stakeholders

in the Town. The plans, created by award winning architects Stallan Brand, outline the Trust’s proposals for a new state of the art community facility featuring a flexible main theatre, secondary studio theatre, rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, dance studios, several unique cinema spaces as well as bar and restaurant facilities.

 

Paisley Community Trust carried out a comprehensive feasibility study into the project and identified an overwhelming market demand for such a facility in the town. At present a number of sites have been shortlisted with a preferred option emerging.

Final plans are set to be publicly unveiled in September 2017. “We were delighted to be approached by Paisley Community Trust to review their plans for the newly proposed Cinema and Theatre for the town. What can we say, we were blown away with what we saw! The designs look amazing. Having been a massive supporter of the town and with close relationships to the communities, we have a fairly good idea of what people are looking for and what the town needs. The Trust’s plans are exactly what the town needs. It will put Paisley back on the cultural map, not just locally but nationally. It will attract people and communities back into use the town.

You’ll be able to take part in a variety of classes or to catch a movie or a show. There is no doubt this will provide the transformation the town needs. Community groups, Council and Paisley Buddies need to get behind the Trust’s vision. We’re in!”

Brian McGuire, Founder, Paisley.org.uk

“Paisley.org.uk is without doubt one of the key websites for Paisley. They work closely with the town, businesses and community.

They have their finger on the pulse when it comes to what the town needs. We were nervous in showing them because we really respect their knowledge, however we shouldn’t have been. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Their backing and support confirms the need in the town for what we are planning. We’ve agreed that Paisley.org.uk will be one of our key partners in engaging and discussing with the town’s communities. We’re delighted to share a teaser image for Paisley.org.uk to exclusively publish with more news to come!”
