Town hall ‘transformation’ into major music venue almost completed

THE next stage in ongoing regeneration of Paisley town centre has been almost completed with the ‘transformation’ of a building into what is being described as “one of the finest entertainment venues in the west of Scotland”.

Paisley Town Hall has undergone a £22m renovation, following its closure five years ago.

It is due to welcome the celebration of Gaelic language and culture, the Royal National Mod, in October.

Says the local authority, Renfrewshire Council, here: “The building has been transformed as part of a wider investment by Renfrewshire Council in Paisley’s historic cultural venues, aimed at driving new life and footfall to the area.”

The architects was Holmes Miller and contractor Morrison Construction.

The announcement adds: “The building has been closed since the end of 2018. Main contractors, Morrison Construction, have been on site since summer 2021 but have now completed their work and staff are currently fitting it out ahead of opening. The building remains closed to the public while that work is finished.”
