Welcome to the Harbour Arts Centre

Located in the picturesque setting of Irvine Harbourside, The HAC is the cultural hub for North Ayrshire. We offer a diverse programme of theatre, comedy, music and visual arts – often featuring local artists – and a wide range of classes and workshops to suit all ages and abilities.

For the the moment we have had to close our doors and are unable to host any live performances or exhibitions, but we have been working hard to bring our performers and artists directly to you! – At Home at the HAC 

Courtyard Studios Exhibition

The Courtyard studios is situated next to the harbour arts centre and is home to some of Ayrshire’s most talented artists. They host exhibitions in their workshops throughout the year where visitors can view their work and meet the artists. This year the artists have put together a virtual exhibition to showcase their work until they can welcome visitors back to the studios, hopefully in the new year.


Until we meet again enjoy a selection of exhibitions and performers we have featured at the HAC – For more check out and subscribe to our YouTube Channel  

Virtual arts and crafts fair    

Ayrshire is full of creative artists and makers and during these challenging times there are less places to showcase their amazing work. Browse a selection of their work and find out more about the artists in our Creative Studio virtual craft fair. Its FREE and you can visit whenever you like!
