The Spree national festival will bring something new to the Scottish arts scene and to prove it organisers have announced its programme for under 18s. Three local initiatives; Create, Pace Theatre and Loud ‘n’ Proud will show just how talented you people can be.
Create is inspired, informed and run by volunteers and interns who are dedicated to building a creative arts focused future for Paisley where a community of confident young artists and musicians can develop and thrive.
On Friday 26 October, Create, in association with Hit the Road will hit the stage with Create Wars 2012, its final battle of the local bands. Last year’s winner Crown of Storms will head the bill before hitting the road on their own Scottish tour. The Wynd Centre, Paisley, from 18:00, £2
On Saturday 27 October, Loud ‘n’ Proud will present the Wee Band and the Acutones with special guests.

The Spree’s about a good laugh too, so there’s a Kids’ Comedy Club, in association with The Stand Comedy Club on Saturday 27.

All content is age appropriate, every young fan must be accompanied by an adult and the club is not suitable for the under 5s. The Wynd Centre, Paisley, from 14:00, £5
Local theatre company, PACE, will be performing “Terra Nova”……………The roots of our lives spread out in all directions, some to the north, some south, east and west, creating a true concordia of ideas to inspire our spirit with every step we take into the unknown…”
In a unique work devised for The Spree’s Spiegeltent, young actors pave the way for more vibrant creativity in the reflective sight of their Terra Nova … In words, movement and song PACE is stepping out to the rhythms of its heart. Spiegeltent, Paisley, from 15:00
