Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Pais­ley’s an­nual Spree fes­ti­val is be­ing served up with a side-or­der of burg­ers, beer and ban­ter – with a lo­cal bar bring­ing some of Scot­land’s top co­me­di­ans to the town.

Gil­mour Street venue, Burger and Keg, has teamed up with Fosters to stage a live tent in Abbey Close for the first nine days of the an­nual fes­ti­val, on be­tween Oc­to­ber 13 and 24.

The 150-ca­pac­ity venue will host top names in­clud­ing Pais­ley’s very own Tom Urie – who will ap­pear along­side co­me­dian Janey God­ley on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

Other well- known com­edy acts ap­pear­ing in­clude Bur­nistoun’s Rab Florence sup­ported by Scot­squad’s Darren Con­nell, on Saturday, Oc­to­ber 14, the team from ICW Wrestling, on Monday, Oc­to­ber 16 and the Think­ing Drinkers along­side Billy Kirk­wood, on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 19.

Singer and ac­tor Tom Urie – who re­cently starred in the BBC’s Proms at the Park with a stir­ring ren­di­tion of opera clas­sic Nes­sun Dorma – popped into Burger and Keg to meet own­ers Trevor Mills and Gary McCaw.

Tom said: “I am look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing in my home town in the Burger and Keg Live Tent dur­ing The Spree.

“I’ll be there with my pal Janey God­ley for a night of mu­sic and com­edy... and I look for­ward to see­ing you then.”

Trevor added: “The Spree is great for Pais­ley – it brings foot­fall into the town which ben­e­fits us and other busi­nesses, and if we win UK City of Cul­ture 2021 that will move to a to­tally dif­fer­ent level. “So we are de­lighted to be in­volved in The Spree.” The full pro­gramme and tick­ets are at www. thes­pree.co.uk
