Paisley’s annual Spree festival is being served up with a side-order of burgers, beer and banter – with local bar Burger and Keg bringing some of Scotland’s top comedians to the town.
The Gilmour Street venue has teamed up with Fosters to stage a Burger and Keg Live Tent in Abbey Close for the first nine days of the annual festival, on between 13 and 24 October.
The 150-capacity venue will host top names including Paisley’s very own Tom Urie – who will appear alongside fellow comedian Janey Godley on Wednesday 18 October.
Other well-known comedy acts appearing include Burnistoun’s Rab Florence supported by Scotsquad’s Darren Connell (Saturday 14th), the team from ICW Wrestling (Monday 16th) and the Thinking Drinkers alongside Billy Kirkwood (Thurs 19th).
There’s also an entertainment programme from Paisley-based promoters NNE and a showcase hosted by regular Burger and Keg open-mic man Johnny Barr, while free daytime shows include theatre workshops for kids from AG Theatre School and poetry classes run by Paisley Poems.
The Burger and Keg Live Tent will also be open as an outside bar for fans attending the main Spree shows in Paisley Abbey, including eagerly-anticipated and sold-out gigs from Paisley’s Paolo Nutini and Frightened Rabbit with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

The Spree festival is now in its sixth year and taking place as part of the push towards Paisley’s bid to be UK City of Culture 2021.
