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