We are glad you enjoyed your first visit. The Steamie was a great show to see for a first time visitor - but I hope you'll find other shows to your taste over the next few months. We look forward to seeing you again.

Gaiety is looking really good after a long make over. Well supported by local talent and they put on some nice shows.

We are glad you enjoy the theatre and shows. Around a quarter of our performances showcase local talent, with the rest bringing the best of Scottish, UK and occasionally international artists down to Ayr.

We saw Snow White here in 2016 and Aladdin in 2013. You can't beat a pantomime at Christmas for both young and old. If we're in Ayr around Christmas time, then the Gaiety Panto is always a must and great value for entertainment!

Historic small theatre with good refurbishment. Friendly if amateur volunteer staff (letting people inn during performance). On my only visit which was to see Central Ballet the audience was one of the worst behaved I have ever seen

Sorry - nothing in the programme or plans just now. Maybe a comeback tour in 2030?
