About

The Gaiety Theatre is the jewel in the Manx Heritage crown. Steeped in history and tradition, the Gaiety is one of the finest examples designed by the legendary theatre architect, Frank Matcham. First opened in 1900 the theatre has since undergone extensive historical restoration to ensure it remains one of the finest working theatres in the British Isles.

Boasting a year round programme of top class entertainment, including family shows, musicals, pantomimes, plays, comedians, concerts and more, you’ll be sure to find something entertaining to watch during your time on the Island.

The Gaiety, which is also home to the only surviving Corsican Trap in the British Isles, played host to the Hollywood film, Me and Orson Welles in 2008, providing the backdrop for the story and replicating the Mercury Theatre in New York in 1937.

Visitors can learn more about this magnificent venue by taking part in a theatre tour on most Saturdays which are held Easter to end of September from 10am (allow 2 ½  hours). Numbers are limited so booking in advance is recommended.
