‘Talk of the Town’ A Billboard Take-over 22 Feb – 06 Apr 2021* (Offline)

This spring a series of three specially commissioned pieces of writing penned by Renfrewshire-based writers will be pasted up large on the billboard outside Gilmour St Station.

First up will be Roddy Scott’s dance for Paisley people – a hopeful call for renewed joy. The second writer to feature will be David Rae, whose inspiration is the station itself - one of the busiest in Scotland, and a gateway both to the town and to a thousand other worlds. The final billboard in the series will feature a love note to Paisley, and a rallying cry to its people by Kick the Door that asks – with that all behind us, what next?
