Children who just can't wait for Christmas can meet Santa before the big day by heading along to the Paisley Centre.

The jolly man in the red suit will be in his grotto on the upper floor of the shopping centre every Saturday, from 11am to 3pm, until December 23.

Every child who visits Santa will be given a selection box and advance booking is not required for the free event.

The 'Paisley's Big Christmas Weekends' event is running until Sunday, December 17, while the 'Paisley's Christmas' event will end on Saturday, December 30.
