Ayr Gaiety Theatre

Door open days

8 September 2019 (10:00-16:00)


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.
