Ayr is known for it’s dark tunnels and secret catacombs. But they’ve never found anything like this. Prison cells left forgotten by time; haunted by diabolical and violent apparitions. To make matters worse the original investigation team has been struck with a hideous infection.
As night falls what begins as a series of unfortunate events becomes a frightening and blood drenched fight for survival. Containment is a visceral and disturbing new take on the traditional Haunted House from the team who brought you Outbreak and Nightmare On High Street. Returning to the auld prison cells in Ayr Town Hall’s hidden underbelly, War Cry Productions will push you to the edge as it sends you careening into the stuff of nightmares.

AYR CONCERT SERIES: SCOTTISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
We have come to expect startling adventures every time SCO Associate Artist Richard Egarr is in town, and this programme will doubtless be no exception. We may not be familiar with the name Etienne Mehul as his scores were lost for many but, as Paris’ answer to Mozart and Haydn, Beethoven thought highly of his French contemporary. Egarr agrees, reasoning that Mehul’s stormy First Symphony “deserves a much higher status in 19th century music history.” Experience the freedom of the countryside and total harmonic happiness with Betterhoven’s homage to nature, his ‘Pastoral’. Beethoven – Overture, Prometheus. Mehul – Symphony No 1 in G minor. Beethoven – Symphony No 6 ‘Pastoral’. Richard Eggar, Conductor.
Tickets: Standard £24 (Circle) £20 (Stalls) Student £5 (Stalls Only) Child £3
