As part of the entertainment on offer, a magic trail across shops and cafes will take place on Saturday 15 October (11am – 3pm) and Friday 21 October (11am – 3pm).

Magicians Tommy Templar and Stevo of Paisley Magic Circle popped into Cardosi’s espresso bar on Paisley High Street this week to amaze staff with some magic tricks.

The Spree for All is being supported by local business development group Paisley First.

Andrew Mitchell, Business Development Manager for Paisley First, said: “We are delighted that Paisley First can support the Spree for All. It’s a great idea and will build on the existing success of The Spree to involve as many of our town centres businesses as possible in a celebration of arts, culture and entertainment.”

Gary Kerr of LNP Promotions, organisers of The Spree for All, added: “This is the first year we’ve tried to organise an event like this and the backing we are getting from local businesses shows the real community spirit we have here in Paisley.

“We think the trail will be absolutely magic and, judging by the tricks that Tommy and Stevo have already shown us, anyone watching the magicians is guaranteed to be amazed!”
