hall and observatory to unique gems like the Grand Fountain.
“And Paisley’s bid will put the town in the international spotlight, helping to attract tourists and bring people into our town centres.”
The weekend also put a spotlight on Paisley’s culture and events scene, with people encouraged to take to Twitter and Instagram and share photos using #Paisley2021 to help take a snapshot of what happens in the town on an average weekend.
Highlights of the weekend included Call to Yarns - the kick-off of the Renfrewshire Tapestry project, and Paisley on Film - a unique showcase of old photographs and films about the town, hosted in University of West of Scotland.
Heritage walks, live music, art exhibitions and art classes also featured.
Councillor Macmillan added: “This weekend is very important to Paisley’s bid. It has helped us create a clear picture of the town’s culture and events on an average weekend. This snapshot is a baseline that, along with the views of the community, will help us develop a distinctive, innovative and inclusive cultural programme which stretches across all of Renfrewshire.”
