It's not only Edinburgh that is culturing it up this festival season. Ayrshire is going live in a big way; The Kilmarnock Edition Festival and Live@Troon both take place between the 3rd and 5th of September and the annual Septembayr Festival kicks off at the same time for four weeks of music and the arts.
According to the Semptembayr website, "This is Ayr’s own festival, organised by local volunteers. Septembayr is a mixed media festival encompassing popular and classical music, drama, street events, and sport."
There are three pages of events listed in the programme and over the coming days we'll select some highlights for the visitor to Ayrshire to look out for. In the meantime have a look at a packed programme online and book your tickets - many available online - or download the PDF Event Brochure
You can easily book a great value Ayrshire short break and make a weekend of it.
