Tags: Weekend 2 (7-8 September)

8 September 2019

The Gaiety Theatre, designed by local architect J McHardy Young, was built in 1902. This category B listed building closed in 2009, and after a huge campaign by the local community, reopened in December 2012 with Cinderella. The theatre is now run as a charity by the Ayr Gaiety Partnership with the support of over 100 volunteers. In 2016 the Gaiety underwent a £2.4 million refurbishment which highlights the Art Deco and Edwardian heritage, with the Rococo style Cherubs being of particular historic interest. Pre-booked tours available from the Box Office tel 01292 288 235, or visit www.thegaiety.co.uk for more information. Accessible tours 12 noon until 1pm.

Colzium House was built in 1783, substantially enlarged in 1861, but much of the original building was pulled down in the late 1940s, due to dry rot, but the Victorian frontage and wings survive to form the house we see today. The Colzium Lennox Estate is rich in history and includes the excavated remains of a 15th Century L-plan tower house demolished in 1703, and a traditional Scottish ice-house c.1680 which has been restored and is open for public inspection. Also on the estate is a fine walled garden with numerous interesting shrubs and trees. The former Clock Theatre has been converted into a visitor centre and garden cafe, featuring audio visual displays about Colzium’s colourful history.
