Council unveils heritage events

North Ayrshire Council has announced a list of events to be held at the Heritage Centre in Saltcoats (the former North Ayrshire Museum) over the next few weeks.

The programme starts with a kids event on Saturday (May 17). The ‘Big Beat Saturday’ offers an opportunity for those aged between 9 and 16 to get involved in live drumming and digital music-making with the help of experienced tutors. Tickets cost £2.00 for a two-hour music session (10.30am to 12.30pm or 1.30pm to 3.30pm).

On Wednesday evening (May 21), the heritage Centre will host a whisky cocktail demonstration – strictly for over 18s only. Tickets cost £2.00.

The following afternoon (May 22) sees a time for football fans, with quizzes, chat and recalled-memories of games – and a presentation of Ayrshire’s football legends. Running between 2.00pm and 6.00pm on Thursday, the event will also provide an opportunity to have your photo taken with the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup, before it is presented to the captain of either Glenafton Athletic or Hurlford United (two Ayrshire sides) at this season’s final early next month.

The Heritage Centre, off Manse Street, will then present ‘Love on the Frontline’ - a production following the story of a wounded soldier from Glasgow who meets a nurse from his home town while recuperating in hospital. Featuring classic songs, the production is described as “perfect for all ages” and takes place between 11.00am and 2.00pm on Saturday, May 24. Tickets cost £3.00 for adults and £2.00 for children.

The following Saturday, May 31, sees a project titled ‘Discover World War One’. Suitable for those aged over 10 years-old, the event is said to combine history, music and animation. A special promotional session will take place between 2.00pm and 4.00pm – and then again on Friday, June 6 (5.00pm until 7.00pm).
