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.

Your safety is important to us so we have put in place a range of measures which will help you and our staff feel safe when you visit.
