Beware the witching hour, when supernatural creatures and ghostly figures gather their powers to scare even the bravest of souls at Halloween.

On Saturday 27th October Paisley’s hugely popular ‘spooktacular’ Halloween Festival returns to the town centre.

Inspired by Paisley’s dark and deathly 17th century witch history the Halloween Festival is one of the major events as part of the Year of Young People 2018 celebrations.

On Saturday 27th October, a 500-strong parade will wind its way through the dark streets and creep through the town centre. Expect macabre characters and gruesome parade floats as well as the Beltane Fire Society, Mr Wilson’s Second Liners and the mesmerising Spark! LED drummers.

Stranger things will start to happen as breath-taking aerial performances pop up with people suspended from the Town Hall and look up for a jaw dropping Flying Witches performance, which will see performers swing 120ft above the crowds in Abbey Close, look out for lots of cackling and broomsticks and jaw dropping stunts.

The Main Stage will showcase amazing acts throughout the day and Paisley Town Hall and Abbey will be ‘spook central’ with pumpkin carving, trick or treat booths, scary storytelling and hands on Halloween activities for kids. Plus, County Square will have a funfair and live entertainment from local dance and theatre groups and there will also be fantastic selection of local street food vendors.

Hair-raising horror films for all ages will be screened in venues throughout the town and the historically eerie Paisley Town Hall will play host to two costumed balls – one for ‘unders’ and the other strictly over 18s – on Friday 26th October.

Paisley Halloween Festival is fast establishing a reputation as a must-see event – so join us in 2018 and be a part of something wicked!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paisley Halloween Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
