September is a great month to visit Ayr. The Septembayr Festival is varied to say the least. From well known celebrities such as Neil Oliver giving a talk in Ayr Town Hall, to scary ghost stories and a host of musical entertainment in between. Some of the artists are very well known such as Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, other less so. The Jerry Lee Lewis Story is sure to get your feet tappping. Prices are very reasonable and can be purchased online. Full details at www.septembayr.com
