The Save the Magnum Campaign will gather this weekend to protest against plans to build a new Magnum on the Townhouse site.
Campaigners will meet at the Townhouse on Saturday, November 3 at noon to protest against the proposals.
The rally comes as the group revealed that they have over 1200 signatures on their petition to save the leisure centre from being demolished and relocated.
Campaigners gathered at the Ship Inn on Thursday, October 25, to finalise plans for the forthcoming protests.
The Townhouse was sold as part of the Common Good Fund to North Ayrshire Council for £1 at the end of September, with £3.7m set to be spent on the iconic building.
As part of the regeneration, the town’s courthouse will become a public resource centre and will incorporate a genealogy unit.
The replacement Magnum is set to be built next to the Townhouse at a cost of £17m.
Features in the building include a swimming pool complex, multi-use sports facilities, fitness studios and a cafe.
Residents of Irvine have expressed their dismay at plans to downsize the leisure centre and move it to the Townhouse site.
