Celebrate King Robert the Bruce with us!

North Carrick Celebrates Bruce!

Starting this summer until the end of next year North Carrick will be celebrating the 750th Anniversary of the birth of King Robert the Bruce. The big anniversary falls on 11th July 2024, with our main event planned for Saturday 13th 2024 July in Carrick’s ancient capital, Maybole! Our programme of events will see exciting things going on in North Carrick throughout the year, starting from 1 year to go! Our 2023 Heritage Day will take place on 15th July this year, with something for everyone! Maybole’s Glebe will play host to an arena, music stage, countless stalls and food vendors, as well as plenty of medieval themed activities for our young people to enjoy; including archery and traditional calligraphy! Music from Clann An Drumma and the Glenpark Ceilidh Band will ring through the field! You can enjoy donuts, ice cream and coffee; keeping you fuelled while you enjoy demonstrations from local dog agility champions, and the wonderful History Matters who will be bringing our rich history to life! As well as live entertainment there will be plenty of fun activities to keep you busy, from fun fair rides like ‘the Miami’ to opportunities to try archery, axe throwing and weaving! Follow us on social media where we will be posting fun facts about Robert the Bruce, and all the updates on our future events!
