The Isle of Man's famous Gaiety Theatre, a magnificently restored example of the work of architect Frank Matcham

The Gaiety Theatre on Harris Promenade in Douglas, is one of only a handful of small Victorian theatres remaining in operation in the British Isles. Designed by the renowned architect Frank Matcham and built in 1899, its lavishly beautiful interior has been lovingly restored and is a visual joy.

Today the theatre is in the care of the Isle of Man Government and during the summer season there are theatre tours which are popular with visitors as well as the Island's residents.

Throughout the year the Gaiety plays host to many productions including plays and music events.
