Later today Paisley will find out if it has been named
Everyone here @uwshealth would like to wish the bid team all the best on what we hope is a landmark day for the town.
The winner of the 2021 title will be announced live on BBC’s The One Show on Thursday evening from the current host city of Hull.
Paisley is the only Scottish place – and the first-ever town – to make the shortlist for the 2021 title, awarded every four years by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. the other nominees are Coventry, Stoke, Sunderland and Swansea.
