The Spree For All
About The Spree For All

The fringe event for Paisley’s national arts festival The Spree promises a packed programme of live music, poetry readings, comedy and more.

The launch comes as part of the push towards Paisley’s bid to be named UK City of Culture 2021.

Paolo Nutini will headline this year’s main Spree event with a sold out homecoming gig at Paisley Abbey, while indie rock band Frightened Rabbit and singer songwriter Dougie MacLean are also part of the line up.

The Spree for All, organised by local music charity LNP Promotions and sponsored by Paisley First, sees local bars, cafés and restaurants host a string of live gigs across the town from 14-22 October.

There will be a Family Zone in the High Street on both Saturdays during the event with music, magicians, balloon artists and face painters.

Interactive theatre company Mischief La-Bas will also be adding to the fun with their wacky performances.

LNP co-founder Tommy McGrory said: “They are street artists who will perform as The Elvis Cleaning Company and also perform a pedestrian Grand Prix. They dress up in moustaches and goggles with plastic cars, it’s great fun.

“It’s all happening in and around Paisley.”


Music lovers should also check out the Burger & Keg Live Tent in Abbey Close.
The 150-capacity venue will host top names including Paisley’s Tom Urie, who will appear alongside comic Janey Godley on Wednesday 18 October.

Other comedy acts 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 (Thursday 19th).

Other venues include the Cave, the Gantry, The Anchor Bar, the Bull Inn, Hamishes Hoose, Zambretto, The Old Swan Inn and the Wee Howff.

The Abbey Bar, Bar Pre and the Bungalow will also host events, while CC’s features the H-Arts Drama and Performance groups and comedy from Gary Little & friends on Friday October 13, as well as poetry readings.

Tommy McGrory added: “The Spree for All is the coming together of the people who put on live music and more around the town. It’s got pretty big this year and there’s something for everyone in the town. This year the quality and diversity of the programme is even bigger and better.”

The event also features also a youth stage at Paisley Cross on both Saturdays featuring local talent from 1pm – 5pm.

The Spree for All Fringe is sponsored by Paisley First, the non profit organisation set up to deliver a Business Improvement District in Paisley Town Centre.

Chairman Ian Henderson said: “Paisley has a vibrant cultural scene and we are delighted to support Spree for All in their efforts to take The Spree to venues across the town centre.

“We are hoping to encourage as many people as possible to visit the town and take a fresh look at all Paisley has to offer.”
