Aura is delighted to have been appointed for the second year to work with Renfrewshire Council to work on the launch of The Spree, a national music and arts festival, based in Paisley. It’s funded by the Council, Creative Scotland, EventScotland and partners this year with RSNO and La Mesa.

The festival will run for 10 days (10 to 20 October) alongside the Royal National Mòd (11 to 19 October), Scotland’s premier celebration of Gaelic language and culture, which is taking place in the town for the first time.

The Spree made its debut in 2012 and has been expanded to 11 days this year, building on the success of last year’s event.

Renfrewshire Council is backing and helping to organise both festivals as part of its strategy to promote the area as an events destination, and is looking to involve residents, businesses and visitors.

We’re looking forward to working with Lisa Whytock and the team from Active Events again too!
