A GLIMPSE into the future of Ayr will be shown at a special outdoor cinema screening this weekend. 

A new public space has been created after recent feedback for 'Ayr Your Views' was taken by South Ayrshire Council asked the council to consider transofrming the Riverside site at the bottom of the High Street. 

Now the council want to show residents how future plans to transform Ayr could shape up, giving the public a chance to experience it themselves.

On Sunday evening, they will screen a 30 minute film outside to demonstate the "past, present and possible" for the site. 

The event will be timed to coincide with the climx of the Day o' The Deid Procession due to take place through the town. 

Council officers will be placed from 11am on the day in one of the retail units across from the site to answer questions and speak to people to find out what they would like to see. 

Artistic group WAVEparticle will be on hand to film interviews which will be part of the cinema experience later in the evening.

A spokesperson for South Ayrshire Councild said: "For one evening only we will be taking down the hoarding and allowing the public safe access to the space to get a flavour of what could be, between 6pm and 8pm on Sunday 27 October 2019.

"There will be a 30 minute outdoor cinema experience to help demonstrate the past, present and possible for the site."

Councillor Douglas Campbell, Leader of South Ayrshire Council said: “This event is a great opportunity to get our communities involved in creating a space everyone can use. This is another important milestone towards the vision for Ayr Town Centre which builds upon the town’s existing assets for locals and visitors alike.”

Councillor Brian McGinley, South Ayrshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Tourism and Leisure said: “Creating a new public space at the bottom of the high street will increase footfall in our town and boost our local economy.

"Everyone with an interest in the future of Ayr Town Centre will have the opportunity to put their ideas forward to help develop proposals for the site.”
