Press Release – Paisley Express – 21st August 2019

Coats set to become a landmark entertainment venue in the West of Scotland is now open for business

‘A truly unique and stunning venue in the heart of Paisley’s West End’

The Coats Memorial Preservation Trust are delighted to declare Coats Venue open for business and welcome enquiries for weddings, graduations, music concerts, exhibitions, family gatherings, corporate meetings, community workshops. A multifunctional entertainment hub, Coats Venue can accommodate any event and house up to 600 hundred guests for all types of celebrations and functions. The sell-out Eddi Reader concert proved beyond doubt that Coats works as an entertainment venue which can attract a large audience and the recent filming of Outlander will be instrumental in establishing the venue as a great film location.

Ian Henderson, Chair of the Trust said;

‘This is a magnificent milestone and a credit to the public response to our campaign to save this fabulous building.  A total of more than 2,600 donations large and small have been received from individuals, Renfrewshire Council and from the purchase of debenture seats, commemorative bricks and souvenir plaques, not only saving Coats but ensuring it thrives as a new, multipurpose events space for future generations to enjoy. We are now working towards a grand opening in good time for the Paisley Real Ale Festival next April. 

During the works to install the necessary electrics, heating and the facilities required, we are in a position to run events over the next few months which will be widely publicised as our fundraising efforts continue. 

Located in the West End of Paisley, the new Venue could change the fortunes of local businesses who have suffered a reduction in footfall whilst work on the museum is underway.
