Welcome to The Gaiety! Your theatre may not be open but we are committed to supporting our community, in whatever way we can. Our smallTalk wellbeing service continues with extended opening hours and our creatives are working hard behind the scenes to develop new initiatives to increase social connection, spread joy and offer hope until our curtain can safely rise again. Here on our website you can watch shows and live streams, sign up for creative sessions and find out what’s happening next.  You can still book tickets for shows later in the year. In the meantime, with no ticket income, your theatre needs your support to keep on being a part of your community.

This is a very challenging time for the Gaiety as most of our funding comes from people like you, coming to see our performances. Without these performances, the vast majority of our income is gone. We are determined to survive, to retain our dedicated team, and to get our shows back on track as soon as possible. No matter how long the current emergency lasts, we intend to get through it together. There will be a time when everyone wants to celebrate in Ayr’s beautiful theatre again. But we need your help urgently. The Gaiety Theatre is a registered charity, and also depends on fund raising as well as ticket sales.

So any donation – large or small – will help ensure that our theatre stays thriving, long after this crisis is past.

– Jeremy Wyatt, Chief Executive
