This 'Loose Women' style event will have a panel of four fabulous ladies; Jane McCarry, Carol Smillie, Jackie Brambles and Jennifer Reoch, who will also be our wonderful host for the afternoon! 

Enjoy refreshments to start the afternoon off, followed by some shopping around our fabulous stalls, with everything from jewellery to bags, there will be something for everyone. You will then make your way through to the main event space where you will be treated to a panel of incredible ladies and join in the laughter. 

This is a great treat for all of those wonderful Ladies out there. Why not treat the special lady in your life for Mother's Day, or even better, treat yourself and your friends to some delicious food and great entertainment.

Canapes & Bubbly is £30, you will be handed a glass of sparkling prosecco on arrival. Delicious canapes will be served throughout and you will have the pleasure of enjoying these with the impressive views of Arran in the background. You will have the chance to browse the array of stalls and possibly buy yourself a treat or two! After your shopping, you will be invited into the main function hall where you will get to watch the Ayrshire Hospice Loose Women discuss relevant topics and make you laugh out loud.

Or, why not make a day of it and treat yourself to Afternoon Tea instead? 

Afternoon tea is £50, this includes your delicious afternoon tea with sandwiches, savoury foods and of course some sweet treats.
