A MASSIVE choir completed the Royal National Fashion Show in Perth on Saturday.

The Mòd flag has been handed over to Paisley, which will host a cultural meeting next year.

During the 9 days of the festival, which was held at 14 venues of the Fair City, about 2,100 people took part in 200 competitions.

Contestants came from as far away as Germany, and viewers from the US and other countries watched some of the events online.

It is estimated that around 7,000 people visited Perth for the medical, injecting an estimated £1m into the local economy.

James Graham, chief executive of An Comunn Gàidhealach, which organizes the Royal National Mòd, said: “What a joy to see Gaels come together again to showcase and celebrate our language and culture.

“It was also fantastic to be back in Perth after working so long – its fantastic venues, welcoming community and picturesque streets made it an extremely fashionable place.

“A big thank you to everyone who makes the mod possible, from the hardworking volunteers to the participants and everyone who came to visit and support the event.

“Hearing Gaelic and music in the playgrounds and streets of the town all week was incredible.”

He added: “We are looking forward to bringing our Gaelic Culture and Song Festival to Paisley in 2023 for the first time in a decade.

“The mod will help boost culture and tourism in the town and I’m sure visitors will enjoy the beautiful surroundings and great hospitality that Paisley has to offer.”
