Auchinleck Community Development Initiative hold events throughout the year. These include seasonal events, activity schemes for children and our annual Alive & Kicking festival. We have also held events which tie in with national initiatives such as The Big Lunch and Fun Palaces. We believe holding these events helps us to achieve our organisation’s mission and vision.

What is Alive & Kicking all about?

The name ‘Alive & Kicking’ reflects the energy of the community.

Our 2018 festival will be the 10th anniversary of the Alive and Kicking festival. This year’s festival has some changes to the format but the focus is still on great live music and fun family activities.

The annual festival has met with an immediate popular response from local people, demonstrating that there is interest in good quality, varied entertainment in Auchinleck.

Meet the team

Our events are run by our Events and Activities Co-ordinator, Stuart Mitchell, assisted by a team of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with is, please get in touch.
