Irvine's Harbour Arts Centre is planning to banish the blues on what is thought to be the year's most depressing day, January 18 with an online cuppa and chat.

Monday, January 18 has been labelled Blue Monday, the day when people give up their New Year Resolutions, ditch the diets and feel miserable about themselves. 

But the determined team at the harbourside venue will be helping others beat the blues with an online cuppa and chat.

Throughout the lcokdown the HAC has been keeping its followers entertained online from music quizzes to online art sessions.

During lockdown it has been used as a Food Hub supporting the community of Irvine.

And all you have to do is log on to the HAC's Facebook page as the virtual coffee morning will be on Facebook Live from 10.45am on Monday.
