Ayr’s B-listed Gaiety Theatre re-opens following £2.4m restoration
A B-listed Ayr theatre has re-opened following a £2.4m restoration at the hands of Austin-Smith:Lord on behalf of the Ayr Gaiety Partnership.

This saw the 1902 main auditorium of the Gaiety Theatre restored and updated to become a fully modernised space with new seating and reconfigured access allowing a greater number of wheelchair accessible spaces to be included as well as improving sightlines.

New lighting, sound equipment and a modern stage have also been delivered together with an upgraded ticket booth, remodelled entrance foyer and updated back of house facilities.

George Reynolds, director at Austin-Smith:Lord, commented: “We are thrilled and honoured to have played a role in the revitalisation of Ayrshire’s crown jewel. It’s wonderful to see the Grand Old Lady lift the curtain on her next chapter and we look forward to seeing her continue to engage and entertain audiences of all ages for many more years to come.”

The upgrade marks successful conclusion of an eight year fundraising campaign.
