Paisley is to host a four-day event covering comedy, arts and music, from 25-28th October.

Among the acts confirmed for The Spree are Malcolm Middleton with Miaoux Miaoux, Julia and the Doogans plus James Foley, and appearances from Dick Gaughan, Roddy Frame, Alasdair Roberts, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains and a load more.

The website gives most of the details – most shows will be in a Speigeltent but wit the odd event in the setting of the old Abbey as well.
