Fireworks over Paisley Abbey

Paisley set for 90s themed fireworks spectacular

Paisley is set for a special 90s themed fireworks spectacular as the town's annual display takes place on Saturday 3 November.

The skies above Paisley Abbey will light up in the annual display- and this year's dazzling fireworks event will be backed by a soundtrack of popular hits from the 1990s.

The display will burst into life from 7pm with Bridge Street, Dunn Square and Gauze Street - the section from Smithhills Street to Silk Street-  all tipped by organisers as ideal viewing points.

The funs starts in Paisley Town Hall from 2pm on the day, with a series of free family activities throughout the afternoon - including activity workshops, animation sessions, face painting and a floor paint zone.

The 90s themed fun continues with iconic arcade games on the ground floor and the ever popular 'silent disco' for music fans of all ages.

There will also be a host of activity in the town's County Square with fantastic funfair rides from 2pm.

Capital FM presenters Fat Brestovca and Des Clarke will take to the balcony of Paisley Town Hall for a two-hour live DJ set packed with 90s classics from 5pm before the stunning fireworks display lights up the sky above the Abbey.

Paisley's winter events programme will continue with the town's Christmas Lights Switch-On two weeks later, on Saturday 17 November. The festive cracker will feature entertainment from Capital FM and performances from family favourites Funbox, Princesses of Pop and X-Factor stars The Cutkelvins, as well as the famous Reindeer Parade with Santa and much more.

The winter event thrills will also extend across Renfrewshire with Christmas Lights Switch-Ons in Renfrew on Saturday, 24 November and Johnstone on Saturday, 1 December.
