Paisley’s Christmas

About Paisley’s Christmas

Get ready to jingle all the way because Renfrewshire Council and Scotland’s Theme Park have joined forces to bring you Paisley’s Christmas.

Paisley’s Christmas will run from Thursday 30 November to Saturday 30 December (excluding Christmas and Boxing Days). Highlights include:

Paisley’s Ice Rink
County Square, Paisley
Thursday 30 November to Saturday 30 December, various times
As part of the Paisley’s Christmas celebrations in the town centre we are excited to welcome back the spectacular undercover outdoor Ice Rink complete with themed Bavarian bar. The perfect family festive day out.

The Ice Rink will be open Tuesday to Sunday, during selected times, from 30 November up to and including 30 December (excluding Christmas and Boxing Days).

ASN sessions: These sessions provide extra support for individuals with sensory needs, along with their families and caregivers, so they can have a wonderful time in a calm and enjoyable atmosphere. In these sessions, we limit the number of people on the ice, and the music is either turned off or played at a very low volume.

Festive Funfair
County Square, Paisley
Thursday 30 November to Saturday 30 December, various times
Step right up and straight into Paisley’s Christmas with our festive funfair. Whether you’re an adventurous thrill-seeker or prefer a more relaxed experience, a family with kids or young at heart, we’ve got you covered. Just don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster.

Santa’s Workshop
The Art Department, Causeyside Street
Saturday 9, Sunday 10, Saturday 16, Sunday 17 December, 12noon to 4pm
Did you know Santa’s workshop is moving from the North Pole to The Art Department on Causeyside Street, Paisley?

Santa needs some little helpers to come visit for free and do some fun Christmas stuff. You can make cool Christmas decorations, listen to stories from his elves, play fun games, and even write letters to Santa himself.

The best part is everything is free. The elves give you all the things you need, and they’ll show you what to do. And you don’t even need a ticket, you can drop in whenever you want. Paisley’s Christmas is going to be so much fun!

Paisley’s Angels and Elves Christmas Trail
Thursday 30 November to Sunday 7 January
Paisley town centre
Join the fun and discover all the Christmas Angels and mischievous Elves hiding in the windows of local shops and businesses. If you can name them all you could even win a prize.

Starting from Thursday 30 November, and running every day until Sunday 7 January. Grab your special trail map from the Paisley First leaflet stands in the Piazza Shopping Centre or the Paisley Shopping Centre. Plus, don’t miss out on your free activity sheet – it’s loads of fun!

Paisley’s Big Christmas Weekends
Paisley First are hosting free family entertainment on weekends leading up to Christmas. With festive stilt walkers, magicians, jugglers, balloon modellers, face painting, music and lots more.

Paisley Town Centre Christmas Market
Paisley High Street
Saturday 2 December, 10am to 4pm
