Paisley Town Hall transformation set in motion

Holmes Miller Architects have filed plans with Renfrewshire Council for the £22m redevelopment of Paisley Town Hall, entailing a number of external and internal modifications.

These include the repair and replacement of boundary walls and railings, notably the replacement of a section adjacent to Gauze Street with granite steps in order to open up the building to the public.

Internal modifications related to the buildings new use as a centre for performing arts will also be undertaken to increase capacity of the main hall to 1,200 as well as create a new café/bar, dance studio and ‘venue-within-a-venue’.

Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes, chair of Renfrewshire Leisure, said: "… the revamp is predicted to double the number of people who use it each year - bringing new life to the town centre and helping anchor our ongoing wider work to use our outstanding cultural and heritage story to bring new visitors to the area.

"It also means creating a facility in which people will be able to experience world-class culture on their own doorstep, with all the opportunities that means to make people's lives better.”

The A-listed venue is expected to open its doors in late 2021.
