Right now, we’re living in difficult times, we know Lockdown has been challenging for everyone, especially for those on their own which is why we want to extend a warm Gaiety welcome to you beyond our theatre doors via our phone lines. Until we can open our doors, our team will be available Monday – Friday between 10am – 2pm on 01292 288235 to listen, offer a friendly ear and a chat – theatre or non-theatre and hopefully bring a little sunshine into homes across Ayrshire and beyond.

Since March 2020, we’ve been creating online content for audiences via our dedicated Lockdown Season and supporting the wider community with emergency support in partnership. smallTalk is the next step on our journey back to live theatre and we hope it will provide some much-needed companionship and social connection to those feeling isolated or lonely during this time. If you’d like to arrange a call-back please email:
