FOI Request - Spending on Celebrity Appearances

Request 101003365917

I am writing to request a detailed breakdown of spending by your council on celebrity appearances at events, functions, and other engagements over the past five years.

Specifically, I kindly request the following information:

1.  The total amount spent each year on celebrity appearances, broken down by name of celebrity and fee paid, between 2018 and 2023.

2. The nature of the event/reason each celebrity was engaged and paid.

Response 22-08-2023

1. & 2. Figures up to May 2022 have been published in response to previous FOI requests and are therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information otherwise accessible. For ease of reference please see here:


There have been no such appearances since May 2022.
