Abbamania is a widely acclaimed tribute to Swedish pop sensation ABBA. The group get crowds dancing and singing along to their outstanding vocals and musical performances of timeless hits from Waterloo to Dancing Queen.

Making Waves will take place on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24 - and is being arranged by North Ayrshire Council in partnership with local groups and organisations.

Throughout the weekend there will be free entry to the Scottish Maritime Museum, with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities, a family funfair and a ‘makers market’.

The Harbour Arts Centre will offer a range of arts and crafts and drama activities, and the Courtyard Studios will hold an Open Studios weekend – a chance to visit the studios and see the work produced by local artists.

There will also be a number of stalls and exhibits dotted along the harbourside, offering unique opportunities such as the water-based sport of paddleboarding.

Council leader Marie Burns said: “We are incredibly excited to be working alongside some fantastic partners to bring an event like this to Irvine Beach Park and Harbourside - for the first time in decades.

“The lineup for the weekend offers something for everyone. It will also help to showcase the potential of this location for all sorts of large commercial events in the future.

“We look forward to seeing everyone together, enjoying themselves in our stunning seaside destination this summer.”
