The doors will be open for people to attend a free event which will not only celebrate the rich history of the iconic building, but will present early stage plans on how it might change.

The redevelopment plans for the Town Hall will be explained including the recovery of lost rooms and hidden gems in the building.

The night begins at 6pm with the developing plans being shared with the public. Then between 7pm and 9pm there will a Ta Ta Toon Hall celebration featuring film archive footage, music, song, artwork from local groups and the reading of a poem specially-commissioned from local poet, Jim Ferguson.

Although the event is free, anyone wishing to attend should book a ticket to attend by calling 0300 300 1210 or by calling into Paisley Town Hall or Paisley Arts Centre.

Paisley Town Hall’s £22 million transformation is part of a £100 million investment in the town’s cultural infrastructure. This includes investment to re-develop Paisley Museum, Paisley Arts Centre and the launch of our Library in the High Street, Paisley.

The Town Hall will close its doors at the end of 2018 for work to begin and will re-open in 2021.

Fiona Naylor, acting chief executive of Renfrewshire Leisure said: “Paisley Town Hall has played a part in the lives of many generations of people living in Renfrewshire.

“It has a wonderfully rich history and we want to celebrate that. We also want to show people what they can look forward to when the transformation is complete in three years time.”
