Na­tional Mod bid launched

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Perth has for­mally launched its bid for the 2021 Royal Na­tional Mod.

The Fair City hopes the Gaelic mu­sic and arts ex­trav­a­ganza will boost the lo­cal econ­omy, with a study sug­gest­ing it would bring at least £1 mil­lion to the area.

The cam­paign for the Mod co­in­cides with Perth’s bid for the UK City of Cul­ture. Pais­ley also wants the 2021 cul­ture crown and is bid­ding for the Mod, too. The Scot­tish city short­listed for the City of Cul­ture prize will se­cure the Na­tional Mod.
