The Scottish Maritime Museum on Irvine Harbourside is celebrating after a bumper weekend of visitors attending the first Tastes of Ayrshire Food and Drink Festival on Saturday 7 May and Pedal for Scotland Pedal Irvine event on Sunday 8 May.
Nearly 1,500 visitors enjoyed the free Tastes of Ayrshire Food and Drink Festival showcasing Ayrshire and Arran’s finest food and drink. As well as sampling and buying lots of mouth-watering goodies, visitors enjoyed chef demonstrations and Clydesdale Horse cart tours with Tasting History Scotland’s popular Carters & Coastal Culture Tour.
Chris Woodland, Commercial Manager at the Scottish Maritime Museum, says:
We’re thrilled that the first Tastes of Ayrshire Food and Drink Festival was such a tremendous success. The weather was kind, visitors had a great time and all the exhibitors had a busy trading day.
“There’s always something new to do and see at the Museum and we’re looking forward to some monster fun this summer with our Sea Monsters exhibition which opens next month!”
