Book now: Latest NASA events

North Ayrshire Staff Association (NASA) has pulled out all the stops to bring some fun and cheer to members again this year.

NASA is back for 2023 and the action starts this March with an amazing ABBA Tribute Band, the NASA AGM and the TV Gameshow Night. April then brings the much-anticipated Grand National weekend and a special party night that is not to be missed to celebrate NASA’s 25th Anniversary.

Running since April 1998, NASA is run on a voluntary basis by a Committee consisting of Office Bearers and Staff Representatives.  The group organise a number of social and sporting events throughout the year for the benefit of its members and local charities.

Currently there are 1,443 members who are all North Ayrshire Council employees, with associate memberships also available to retired employees/partnership.  Membership entitles you to attend any of the NASA events and entry into the NASA monthly prize draw which gives lucky members the chance to win £250, £100, £50 or £25 each and every month.

Tickets are on sale for the March and April events listed below.  To find out more or to secure your ticket, contact: or alternatively, you can phone or text 07845 580433.
