The Gaiety Theatre, Ayr
In 1902 The Gaiety Theatre opened its doors welcoming artists and their audience. This cultural hub in the heart of Ayr town centre has thrived and survived through two fires, two world wars, threats of demolition and the covid pandemic.
In 2009 The Gaiety went dark and was facing permanent closure but thanks to the hard work and perseverance of The Ayr Gaiety Partnership and the team of volunteers, one of Scotland’s most iconic theatres was saved.
The theatre continues to evolve and inspire. Whether this be through the creative engagement projects, the youth theatre, our volunteer opportunities, or our electric programming.
For Doors Open Days visitors can take part in a guided tour of our historic theatre - tours will run throughout the day.
