Dick Institute Official Unveiling

Dick Institute has re-opened; revamped and refreshed after a major refurbishment. We’ve preserved and enhanced the unique historical features while improving the public spaces.


The building was formally re-opened on the 1 November by Leader of the Council, Douglas Reid and Chair of East Ayrshire Leisure, Councillor Elena Whitham. 


The refurbishment has allowed the period details of the building to shine, including the stained glass windows which now sit behind the lending desk.


The reconfiguration has allowed space to house the new cafe area and also a dedicated events space plus an improved digital suite.



The Dick Institute is open Tues/Wed 10am-6pm, Thurs 1pm-8pm & Fri/Sat 10am-4pm. Elmbank Ave, Kilmarnock, KA1 3BU. ADMISSION FREE
