About Paisley Christmas Lights Switch On

Join Santa and his reindeer as they visit Paisley for the switching-on of the town's Christmas lights with Northern Irish rockers Ash to headline the town’s annual event!

The fun will get under way at noon with the traditional reindeer parade around the town, led by Santa himself, with a full programme of children’s entertainment during the day before the lights go on at 6pm.

Tim Wheeler, frontman of Ash, said: "We’re really looking forward to playing Paisley for the switching on of the Christmas lights this year. Hopefully our tunes will get the elves dancing and the Christmas spirit flowing.”

Santa Claus, who visited the town for the launch of Paisley’s winter events programme, is looking forward to the Christmas Lights Switch On and said: “It will be a happy, wonderful occasion. Paisley’s real strength is its great people and I know they’ll turn out to see me and enjoy the night.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paisley Christmas Lights Switch On are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
