Head to Paisley town centre this Christmas and grab this festive season’s must-have Selfie with Santa! 


Made from more than half a million LEGO® bricks and taking more than three months to build, you can see this amazing creation on Paisley High St until 2nd January, and even sit next to Santa for a Christmas pic like no other! 

As part of BRICKLIVE Christmas, families can also complete the Paisley Penguin Parade Trail – also made from thousands of LEGO® bricks. 

Just follow the trail of penguins around the town centre, naming all our penguins as you go, and find our Christmas Emperor Penguin to claim your festive treat and enter our prize draw! 

Trail maps and entry forms are available now in our Paisley Guide to Christmas, available in the Piazza and Paisley Shopping Centres. 

Paisley has also welcomed the return of WinterFest – our outdoor ice rink is back, and our big wheel is lighting up the Paisley skyline yet again! 

Don’t forget there’s a 20% discount on ice skating for those who can show proof of a PA postcode at the ticket office, or who have a valid Young Scot card. 

Family favourites such as the Rudolph coaster, carousel and the Wave Swinger have returned, as well as the Fire Pit and ever-popular Nutella House. 

And not forgetting our Christmas Golden Ticket Competition – collect a free Golden Ticket with every purchase in Paisley town centre and you could be one of four lucky winners winning £500 of town centre gift vouchers! 

Around 65p from every pound spent locally, stays local – so by picking up that coffee, going for lunch or buying that gift, you can do your bit to support the local community and its businesses. 

Our first lucky winner has already been drawn, our next Christmas draws will take place on 30th November and 7th and 14th December! 

Our Best Dressed Christmas Window Competition also launches on 30th November, Small Business Saturday, giving you the chance to vote for your favourite Christmas window display. 

And follow Paisley First on social media @PaisleyFirst to take part in our 12 Days of Christmas Competition with fantastic prizes from local businesses up for grabs every day in the run up to Christmas.
