“A Victorian gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

What a beautiful building, I had the pleasure of working there for a show and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff and crew are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with I could not praise them enough.
I was given a guided tour and what a gem the place is, the old lighting equipment is fantastic to see, and the old generator room and the only working Corsican Lift in these Islands is worth the trip alone to see.
The Theatre is a wonderful piece of Victorian flamboyance, of which the Staff are justly proud. If you are there go in and see it!

“Wow What A Theatre!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

This theatre was restored by 'Friends of the Gaiety' some years ago and now well worth a visit. It has a wide variety of programmes throughout the year, from Musicals, plays and evenings with:- Paddy Ashdown for example. During the summer months tours of the theatre take place Saturday mornings, these are well worth it.

“Gaiety Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

The gaiety theatre is a good night out for any age of person. The staff are very organised and very helpfully. No matter what you have come to see there is never a problem with not being able to hear to is being spoken. It has a really nice feel to the place and the ice cream at half time is a pleasure.

“Beautiful old theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

This beautiful old theatre stages some really good amateur productions. We recently saw 7 brides for 7 brothers by the Douglas Choral Society - a professional group wouldn't have done much better, it was excellent.
