Austin-Smith:Lord to lead refurbishment of Ayr’s Rococo-style Gaiety Theatre
Austin-Smith:Lord have been chosen to lead a refurbishment of Ayr’s B-listed Gaiety Theatre, alongside interior designer Julia Grant, by the Ayr Gaiety Partnership.

The £2.4m renovation and remodeling will see the original colours and feel of the Edwardian Rococo interiors brought back to life following an upgrade of the ticket office, entrance and foyer.

A second phase, which is now underway, will see improvements to the main foyer, front and back of house areas together with new ventilation, heating and lighting systems.

David Millar, Austin-Smith:Lord director, says: “The Ayr Gaiety Partnership has bold ambitions to redevelop The Gaiety as the leading performing arts venue in south west Scotland and encourage performing arts and culture across the town and wider South Ayrshire region. We’re thrilled to play a role in this very exciting new chapter in the life of the much-loved Gaiety.”
