Maybole is celebrating 500 years of being a burgh over the next few months. Maybole Community Council has secured funding from Ayrshire LEADER, Heritage Lottery, Ayrshire Youth Arts Network and North Carrick Community Benefit Fund to deliver a new and exciting project that will mark the 500th anniversary of Maybole receiving its Burgh of Barony status in 1516. To celebrate this momentous milestone the Community Council, in partnership with local groups and organisations, is holding a series of events and one of the first events to be held is a Burns Supper. This will be held in Maybole Town Hall on Saturday, February 4 at 6.30pm.

This is a mixed event aimed at both male and female guests and the evening will consist of a 5 course meal, guest speakers, recitations of the Bardís poetry, musical guests and the skirl of the pipes. The event will be licensed with a full range of beverages available for purchase on the night. Tickets are limited to 150 and cost of £25 per person. They are available from Robert Green whose the contact details are:

Please note that tickets will only be reserved when payment is made and will be on a first-come first-served basis.  Closing date for applications will be January 25, 2017. 

The Maybole 500 project is part-funded by the Scottish Government and European Community Ayrshire LEADER Programme 2014-2020
